Manitoba Expands Meth Training

Manitoba's Attorney General Dave Chomiak and Healthy Living Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross recently announced the expansion of Meth Lab First Responder training to first responders throughout rural Manitoba.

In the spring of 2006, Manitoba's Departments of Justice and Healthy Living adopted CPKN's Meth Lab: First Responder program to train 600 front line staff, including police officers, firefighters, and social services personnel, in methods to detect meth laboratories, assess hazards, and safely manage meth users. Given the success of that initiative, access to the online training program will be made available to more Manitoba municipalities to ensure that front-line personnel in rural communities have the training and resources needed to combat this growing social issue.
