Dear Members and Friends of the POW Opioid and Addictions Task Force,
We are pleased to announce that we now have Peer Support Specialists with a Recovery Support Team on the Island! You are invited to come and hear about it and what it means for our island at the next monthly meeting on Feb. 4th at 5 PM at the POW Health Care Facility in the Craig/PeaceHealth Conference Room.
Future Training and Event planning will also be on the agenda.
On Feb. 9th at 9:30 AM the Peer Support Specialists will be having a Narcan Kit Building Event in the PeaceHealth Conference Room followed by a
Narcan Training open to you and the public at 10 AM – 11 AM in the same room.
Narcan reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. It is the only thing that will reverse the effects of respiratory shut down from having too much opioid in the brain.
Save a life, get a Narcan Kit.
Narcan Resource List:
Please print the flyers and share this information. Hope to see you there!
With great appreciation,
POW Opioid and Addiction Task Force Facilitator

The City of Thorne Bay City Council Is Holding a Public Meeting on Saturday, January 19, 2019, at the Davidson Landing Fire Hall beginning at 12 Noon.
The meeting will provide updates and information on the South Thorne Bay / Kasaan Road Landslide.
As of Tuesday, January 15th Petro Marine is delivering heating fuel to Kasaan and South Thorne Bay, because of the improvements on the Lake Ellen/bypass road. Thank you to OVK and the City of Kasaan and City of Thorne Bay for getting that road “truck ready”.
EMERGENCY NOTICE OF ROAD CLOSURE
The South Thorne Bay / Kasaan Road is closed due to a Landslide at the 3-mile marker
A USFS team is assessing the slide right now (Jan. 3, 2019) and will make their recommendations soon. The City of Kasaan and Organized Village of Kasaan are assisting.
In the meantime – Kasaan, South Thorne Bay subdivision, & Steep road IS accessible via a back road – the Lake Ellen road is passable and comes back in to the Kasaan Road at Tolstoi Bay. Both entrances are marked with signage. From there you can drive back to the subdivision or to Kasaan. Also, Davidson Landing is there for people who have access to a boat, to get back and forth from ‘town’ to the subdivision (or Kasaan, for that matter)
If there is an emergency in South Thorne Bay call 911. All medical transports will be by boat from Davidson Landing until further notice.
Please do not attempt to cross the slide on foot for safety reason
