By Council Members Ayala, Reynoso, Ampry-Samuel, Holden, Cornegy, Levin, Kallos and Rivera

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to syringe exchange programs

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 17-180.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by a local law amending the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to overdose prevention and reversal training, as proposed in introduction number 668-A for the year 2018, is amended to add subdivisions d, e and f to read as follows:

                     d. For as long as the department determines there is an urgent public health need, the department shall provide opioid antagonists to all syringe exchange programs operating within the city.

e. The department shall require that the staff at all syringe exchange programs operating in the city receive overdose prevention and reversal training. Such training shall teach staff:

1. How to recognize an opioid overdose; and

2. How to properly administer common opioid antagonists to reverse an opioid overdose.

f. Thirty days prior to the department’s determination that there is no longer an urgent public heath need, pursuant to subdivisions b, c and d of this section, the department shall submit a report to the speaker of the council detailing the reasons for such determination.

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date that a local law amending the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to overdose prevention and reversal training, as proposed in introduction number 668-A for the year 2018, takes effect.
