Gibson Gives Announces the TEMPO Program
The charitable arm of Gibson launches a program offering opioid emergency response kits—which contain two doses of the opioid reversal medication Naloxone—to 72-plus live music venues in the Nashville, Tennessee area.
The Music City program is in alliance with the Metro Nashville Police Department. The TEMPO program (Training and Empowering Musicians to Prevent Overdose) is a partnership of 12 music-industry related non-profits across the U.S.
Venues in the program will be provided with a ONEbox (Opioid Naloxone Emergency Box), which is a self-contained, video-enabled opioid overdose rescue response first aid kit that contains two doses of the opioid reversal medication along with personal protective equipment and video instruction in English and Spanish that is activated when ONEbox is opened. ONEbox was invented by West Virginia native, entrepreneur, and guitarist Joe Murphy.
