We partner with Cranford Police, Cranford Fire Department, Cranford Public Works, and other town officials to feed you free burgers and dogs in hopes that you’ll be part of our mission to prevent underage substance abuse. Food, fun, family. It’s a Cranford tradition!

“Although the most recent numbers are encouraging, now is the time to bear down and get to the root of the crisis,” said Freeholder Christopher Hudak, who is the Chairman of the Public Safety Committee. “We are looking forward to hearing from professionals on the front lines of the battle against opioid abuse, and sharing this information with the public.”

The Opioid Epidemic: Silently Affecting Our Community will include:

  • Overview of facts and trends about the opioid epidemic in Union County
  • Details about the County Prosecutor’s Operation Helping Hands program and CLEAR, a collaborative program including the Union County Department of Public Safety, the Office of the Union County Sheriff, the nonprofit organization Prevention Links, and the Union County Department of Human Services

  • Information on Naloxone lifesaving assistance presented by First Responders
