Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that can be present in a number of physical or manufactured forms (e.g., powder, pill/tablet, liquid), which presents different on-scene challenges for emergency responders and is turning up in our jails and prisons.

According to the DEA, “fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 80-100 times stronger than morphine” with street names that include Apace, China Girl, China Town, China White, Dance Fever, Goodfellas, Great Bear, He-Man, Poison, and Tango & Cash. Fentanyl is cheaper and stronger than illicit opioid pills or heroin. One kilogram of fentanyl costs about $8,000 compared to $80,000 per kg for heroin.

Given the growing incursion of fentanyl into correctional facilities and the possibility of transdermal or respiratory exposure, many agencies are looking to protect their correctional officers and K9s. These agencies need to know basic information about fentanyl, personal protective equipment and decontamination processes so they can prepare their officers and keep them safe.

This Corrections1 guide provides information on how correctional agencies can assess the fentanyl exposure risks faced by their personnel and procure the appropriate protection and detection equipment.

  • Key considerations before purchasing fentanyl protection and detection products
