As part of an effort to address the growing risk posed by fentanyl, a dangerous synthetic painkiller, Lane County Public Health is launching a campaign to raise awareness. LCPH announced the launch of the Fentanyl Aware campaign on January 26, saying it was intended to help address the increasing supply and use of fentanyl in Lane County. LCPH says the increased prevalence of the illicit opioid has led to increased calls to 911, more emergency room visits, and deaths. LCPH hopes the campaign will help counteract those effects by promoting knowledge and safety through education. “Ultimately, we hope the outcome of this campaign is saved lives,” said Lane County Public Health Community Health Analyst and Fentanyl Aware campaign coordinator, Alexander LaVake.
