|WHAT:||High 5 Hospitality group will recognize the manager (Destiney Rivera) of a Jersey Mike's location in Newark during a ceremony on Jan 30, at 505 Stanton Christiana Rd Newark, DE 19713. On Jan 24, Destiney Rivera jumped into action after seeing a customer collapse after leaving the bathroom. The manager quickly grabbed the Narcan kit and applied the training they learned from DPH when Jersey Mike's enrolled in its Restaurant Accolade Program. This program provided training on how to recognize and respond to an overdose to the restaurant employees. Additionally, Narcan is placed at the site. Restaurants interested in participating in the program, which helps them support both staff and customers experiencing substance use disorder, should email OHCR@delaware.gov.|
