National bus tour stops in Twin Cities, trying to save lives with community conversation

A national bus tour on a mission to help people recovery from addiction and save lives had a stop in Minneapolis.

Sunday, the Mobilize Recovery Across America 2022 bus was parked at Minneapolis Fire Department’s Station 14. The bus tour helps bring community leaders and stakeholders together to generate conversation – a main focus during the Twin Cities’ visit was on opioid use, specifically fentanyl.

“I’ve seen a lot of different addictions and a lot of different things hit the community over the years, but right now fentanyl to me is the biggest challenge and the increasing proliferation of it,” Bryan Tyner, fire chief for the Minneapolis Fire Department, said.
