Our Mission

One hundred and thirty people die from opioid overdoses daily. Ambulance arrival times can take up to 15 minutes in an emergency, and after four to six minutes without oxygen brain damage is likely to occur in an overdose victim. Death is likely after ten minutes.

Through the combined teamwork of Cover2 Resources, NaloxBox, NaloxoFind, and Project Dawn, our mission is to build a trained community of first responders that can quickly react to an opioid overdose, and provide a second chance for recovery.


OBJECTIVES

Stop OBSERVING and start RESPONDING


Map and Finalize NaloxBox Locations

Establish public use NaloxBox locations and accurately map their positions.  


Recruit Volunteers to Community of First Responders

We need individuals who are passionate about fighting the opioid epidemic. You supply the time and the willingness to help, and we’ll supply the rest.  


Conduct Project DAWN Training

This training will provide volunteers with the skills they need to effectively administer Naloxone to opioid overdose victims.


Download NaloxoFind

First Responders can quickly respond to an opioid overdose, and communicate with other first responders in an emergency situation.


Coordinate Community ODMAP Reporting

Collect crucial data on the attributes of each emergency and upload real-time overdose surveillance data.

The opioid crisis claims the lives of loved ones every day. Together, we can each do our part to reduce these unnecessary deaths, but we need your help.

The Programs

NaloxBox

Inspired by the proliferation of AEDs for heart attacks, NaloxBox is an Opioid Overdose Response Tool that allows the user to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. The NaloxBox mission is to improve the capacity of bystander rescuers to save the lives of victims of opioid overdose by increasing access to publicly available overdose response resources in settings in need of quickly accessible, public use naloxone. Naloxone is an opioid overdose reversal drug.

NaloxoFind

A smartphone app that allows anyone to identify and locate available naloxone within a two-mile radius, and to communicate directly with those carrying this life-saving drug. This free app also allows first responders and good Samaritans to register as naloxone carriers, making them reachable by NaloxoFind App users in emergency situations.

Project DAWN

A program of the Ohio Department of Health, Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided With Naloxone) is a community-based overdose education and naloxone distribution program. Through medical training, participants can recognize the signs and symptoms of an overdose, administer Naloxone, and reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. 

Our Story

Ever since starting the Cover2 Resources Podcast back in 2016, we’ve been introduced to the many amazing people and programs battling the opioid crisis all over the United States. This past February, we connected with four programs, NaloxBox, NaloxoFind, Project DAWN, and ODMAP Reporting, that when cooperating in unison, can drastically reduce the number of lives claimed by the opioid epidemic.  

Together, we’ve collaborated to form this Community of First Responders, an expanding alliance of people and families, taking action to help save lives from an opioid overdose.
