  • Opioid Epidemic.  Project Save Lives has been successful in reducing opioid related deaths as well as calls for service from JFRD. It is important that we continue to ensure the success of this program. Council President Hazouri asks this committee to monitor the progress of the opioid epidemic and recommend suggestions for improvement and/or expansion of program Project Save Lives. It will remain the legislative body's vehicle in fighting the opioid crisis while working hand in hand with members of the Opioid Abuse Prevention Committee established by ordinance 2019-56-E. 
  • Vaping.  Make recommendations in regards to vaping or use of electronic cigarettes.  Provide updates on the vaping and use of electronic cigarettes, public service announcements, and the success of the City's campaign to educate youth on the dangers of vaping.
  • Mental Health Resources.  Metal Health Resources and awareness resources are important tools.  This Commission will provide a survey of the City and State funds and the recipient agencies thereof, and provide a summary of city and state mental health resources.
