What precautions are in place to prevent children from accessing the Narcan?

The CCPHC building has numerous children in its lobby every day. We want to assure everyone that there are several barriers in place that would make it hard for a child to access and ingest the medicine.

The distribution box has a heavy spring-loaded door. The Narcan doses are inside a sealed box and then inside the box, each dose is in a blister pack that must be peeled open. Even in the worse-case scenario of a child being able to get through all these barriers and administer Narcan to themselves, the medication would ultimately not cause them any harm.
