Synthetic Opioid Response PPE Recommendations


The overarching mystery surrounding synthetic opioids, specifically carfentanil has lead to some significant controversy within the public safety community. "Grey Death" as it has been coined is not necessarily as well understood as many think. Unfortunately everything on facebook is not really true. We are hoping to provide some clarity to this subject. Below is a great resource for Fentanyl and Synthetic Opioid Response, decontamination and PPE Selection from the Interagency Board.
