On September 1, 2022, Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach, with support from Brown County Public Health, declared Fentanyl a Community Health Crisis.
At that time, Brown County Public Health announced a strategy that included collaborating with public and private community partners to assist in efforts to raise awareness around the dangers posed by fentanyl, opioids, and other emerging drugs. Brown County Public Health wants to help raise awareness of fentanyl and opioid addiction by partnering together to focus on prevention, response, and recovery, while attempting to reduce the number of overdoses in Brown County.
Brown County Public Health aims to work together to develop a network of informed, caring neighbors who will help current and future generations make smart choices or at least get the help they need. To start, please see the flyers at the end of this story to raise awareness on fentanyl.
