01/22/2018

This was the scene in Dublin Friday as members of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and local agencies, gathered to take part in tough, realistic training for potential encounters with the deadly drug Fentanyl. Virginia State Police, Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, Lewis Gale Hospital, multiple area fire departments, REMSI and Pulaski and Dublin police departments participated.

This was only the second time Fentanyl exposure training of this magnitude has taken place nationwide, according to DEA; and the situational training opened many eyes to the dangers of the drug.
