A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to overdose prevention and reversal training

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 17 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 17-180.1 to read as follows:

                     § 17-180.1 Overdose prevention and reversal training. a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Opioid. The term "opioid" means an opiate as defined in section 3302 of the public health law.

Opioid antagonist. The term “opioid antagonist” means naloxone, narcan or other medication approved by the New York state department of health and the federal food and drug administration that, when administered, negates or neutralizes in whole or in part the pharmacological effects of an opioid in the human body.

b. For as long as the department determines there is an urgent public health need, the department shall offer overdose prevention and reversal training to the general public. Such training shall include:

1. How to recognize an opioid overdose; and

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

c. For as long as the department determines there is an urgent public health need, the department shall offer a public awareness strategy to inform the public of the existence of such trainings and the danger of opioid addiction and abuse.
