BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — Kern Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS) will join the Kern County Public Health Department for a press conference to discuss the dangers of fentanyl on Tuesday, October 25th.

Health experts are urging parents to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose, which can include small pupils, falling asleep, slow breathing, and cold or clammy skin.

Kern BHRS is also stressing the importance of carrying Narcan. The treatment helps revive someone during an overdose and is easy to carry.
