Sergeant Redmond with the Schenectady County Sheriff’s Department recently shared his knowledge about the dangers of opioids and presented the Opioid Overdose Program to Sondra Rondeau’s Life in the ER class at Duanesburg High School.

The students also learned and then demonstrated how to administer Narcan in the event of an opioid overdose during the sergeant’s March 1 visit.
