National Drug Take Back Day

The stations of Forever Media in Johnstown supported local law enforcement in conjunction with the DEA for a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on April 27, 2019.  Drug take backs address a crucial public safety and public health issue by removing unwanted, unneeded and expired over-the-counter and prescription drugs from households where they could be abused or cause accidental overdose by children or pets.  Forever Media of Johnstown publicized the event’s more than 20 drug disposal locations and broadcast from 5 of those locations.  At the end of the day, more than 1000 pounds of medications were collected from Johnstown and Somerset Counties.
