Gov. Wolf Renews 13th Opioid Disaster Declaration

On February 9, Governor Tom Wolf signed his 13th renewal of PA’s Opioid Disaster Declaration, which was first enacted in January 2018. The declaration allows for a number of initiatives and resources to help mitigate the opioid crisis and assist those suffering from opioid use disorder. Under the disaster declaration, work to address the opioid crisis focuses on three areas: prevention, rescue and treatment.

“The opioid and heroin epidemic is an ongoing public health crisis, one that requires immense coordination of staff and resources to save lives and promote healing,” said Gov. Wolf. “Public health emergencies like this one are complex disasters that require a concerted, sustained response from the state.”
