  • Fentanyl Identification and Response

  • The opioid crisis just keeps getting worse, in part because new types of drugs keep finding their way onto the streets. Fentanyl, heroin’s synthetic cousin, is among the worst offenders. In 2015, more Calgarians died from fentanyl overdoes than all the traffic accidents and homicides. The demographic use includes all sectors and all ages. Canada has the highest rate of prescriptions per capita in the world and this could be one of the leading causes of the increases in addictions. In Alberta, it is legal to purchase and import pill presses from Asia and set up shop in your basement.

    With the dramatic rise in opioid use and production, houses that suffer water damage, sewer backup, fire, etc. could also be affected by either fentanyl production and/or use. It is important that adjusters, restoration technicians and others in the industry learn to recognize an opioid affected house and know the correct response to keep them and others safe.
