Overdose Aid Kits, or OAK boxes, are boxes that include information on how to administer the life saving drug naloxone (Narcan) in an emergency, breathing masks, and other information and resources for those impacted by the opioid epidemic.
We partner with many locations across Dane County to make naloxone and fentanyl test strips available free of charge. Our goal is to have the naloxone in each OAK available for anyone to take, no questions asked, to use in an onsite emergency or to keep in their first-aid kit for future use.
