King County and Washington state are experiencing the highest number of fentanyl-related overdoses in history. In King County alone, fentanyl-related deaths have increased from 3 in 2016 to 314 to date in 2021. In response to this crisis, King County developed Laced & Lethal, a public health campaign that educates teens and adults on the dangers of fentanyl-laced drugs and ways to prevent a fatal overdose.

To spread fentanyl and overdose prevention awareness throughout King County and Washington state, Laced & Lethal has developed a new toolkit for partners and members of the community. This toolkit includes insightful tips, materials, and resources for community education.

In this upcoming webinar from Laced & Lethal, December 7, 1pm PT, moderator Katie Weber from Rescue and speakers Dennis Worsham and Brad Finegood from Public Health Seattle King County and Erin Carosa from Dept. of Community & Human Services will help you:

  • Gain an understanding of the fentanyl crisis and its local impact
  • Explore learnings from the Laced & Lethal campaign
  • Learn how to use the toolkit’s tips and tools to reduce overdoses in your community
