Drug Safety for First Responders


Drug Safety for First Responders

Information and safety data about fentanyl, carfentanil and other drugs. Many fentanyl-related compounds are lethal and could be absorbed through the skin or inhaled. Law enforcement, Fire/EMS and volunteers on-scene should learn about these dangers and carefully follow safety protocols to avoid accidental exposure.

Please use this group to share safety tips, protocols, articles and other discussions and experiences from the field.


Members: 28
Member Activity: Jul 6

The most lethal drugs in history.

Carfentanil is used as a tranquilizing agent for elephants and other large mammals. The
lethal dose range for carfentanil in humans is unknown; however, carfentanil is
approximately 100 times more potent than fentanyl, which can be lethal at the 2-
milligram range, depending on route of administration and other factors.

For additional safety information, please use the resources below:

 CDC Health Advisory (#CDCHAN-00384);

 CDC Health Update (#CDCHAN-00395);

 DEA Fentanyl Warning



Below "Fentanyl: The Real Deal" video provides scientific, evidence-based recommendations to protect against exposure to fentanyl and is an essential training tool for first responders as they continue to fight on the frontlines of the opioid crisis. Watch below and read more here

The Maine Attorney General's Office confirms a person in York County has died from the drug carfentanil. The drug has been used as an elephant tranquilizer and is described as 100 times more powerful than fentanyl. Officials in New Hampshire said carfentanil has been linked to three fatal overdoses there. Maine's first carfentanil overdose happened in April. it can take several weeks to get toxicology results back.

Appreciate the invite. we had a carfentanyl OD last night and it was NOT pretty. I think this is what is meant by the Zombie Apocalypse.
