Fentanyl Exposure to First Responders

As the opioid crisis continues in Maine, first responders are increasingly exposed to Fentanyl and Fentanyl-related substances. As these substances can be ingested orally, by inhalation or absorbed through skin and eyes, first responders are at risk of serious, even life-threatening, consequences when encountering these compounds. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Institute of Safety and Health (NIOSH) and federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) have posted online resources regarding preventative measures and personal protective equipment to use when risk of Fentanyl exposure exists.
