Find us February 23rd-25th at Palisades Tahoe in the Sponsor Village
The Tahoe World Cup is an exciting event that brings together some of the world's most talented athletes to compete in various winter sports. As part of this event, TSF will be hosting a booth in the vendors' village, where attendees can learn more about us, suicide prevention and pick up Narcan or other harm reduction supplies.
Hi folks - We're sad to say that we're seeing an increase in suspected overdoses in the Truckee/Tahoe area. Thankfully, Narcan has been available in these instances and lives have been saved.
Unfortunately, on Monday our neighbors in South Lake Tahoe lost four community members to suspected fentanyl overdose deaths. Read more about this tragedy here. Our hearts go out to all impacted by these tragic losses.
In times like these, it is important to remember our overdose prevention best practices and harm reduction tools. To request Narcan, fentanyl test strips, or other harm reduction supplies, check out:

REMEMBER…Counterfeit pills or other street drugs (i.e.- MDMA, cocaine, and others) may include lethal doses of fentanyl. Naloxone is easy to use and small to carry. Naloxone can be used without medical training or authorization and can be used on anyone at risk, as there are no effects on someone without opioids in their system.
