CHICO, Calif. - A local volunteer agency is taking steps to educate the public about opioid overdoses and how to save lives.

The Northern Valley Harm Reduction Colation is offering free training sessions each Friday in June on the topic of overdoses and administering Narcan.

Sessions take place at Blackbird in Chico and participants will learn what signs to watch out for that would indicate an overdose, what puts people at risk and how to properly administer nalaxone nasal spray, which is commonly known as Narcan.

Those who complete the course receive two doses of the spray.

Some showers are expected in your Monday forecast, but will mostly be in the northern end of the valley and mountains. Scattered mountain showers linger Tuesday, then dry and warmer weather takes hold for the middle of the week. Wet weather returns next weekend.
