HERO’s (Helping Emergency Responders Obtain Support) is a program through the Florida Department of Health, that provides emergency responders with emergency opioid antagonist medications.
In 2017, Governor Rick Scott issued statewide Executive Order Number 17-146 (and extended by Governor Ron DeSantis in Executive Order Number 19-36) authorizing current and active Florida pharmacies to dispense Naloxone. Incorporated in the order is the expectation that the SAMHSA Opioid Overdose Prevention Toolkit be followed by all emergency responders.
The HERO’s dashboard developed by PCG and DOH allows for all applicable data associated with these Executive Orders to be electronically tracked throughout Florida - spanning from budget information, approval and processing - to individual doses of Naloxone by first responders.
n 2020, Florida’s emergency responders treated nearly 23,124 drug overdoses…. Yet, in 2020, 34,482 people in Florida died from an opioid drug overdose. More lives can be saved through the expanded use of naloxone, a drug that rapidly reverses the effects of opioid overdose.
If you’re one of the heroes who work every day to save lives, you are well-aware of the statewide and nationwide opioid epidemic.
Florida Department of Health recognizes that many emergency response agencies need assistance obtaining the life-saving drug, naloxone, and that’s where the HEROS system comes in.
