What is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid drug which is approximately 100 times more powerful than morphine. Originally used as an anesthetic for long-term pain management in the form of prescription patches, it is now commonly manufactured in illegal clandestine labs.
How Can We Help?

Our highly trained technicians and state-of-the-art safety equipment allow us to first neutralize the fentanyl compound, and then thoroughly remove any trace of the substance from the contaminated area.

Fentanyl poses a significant threat to law enforcement, first responders, commercial and residential property managers and others who may encounter the substance inadvertently. Fentanyl can be ingested orally, inhaled through the nose or mouth, or absorbed through the skin or eyes, any substance suspected to contain fentanyl should be treated with extreme caution. Exposure to even a small amount can lead to significant health‐related complications, respiratory depression or death.
SCU is committed to providing and deploying an emergency response team 24/7 so that remediation of threats are eliminated.
