The dispensers will be installed at the Copper River Inn and the Back Alley Bar in Emo and will carry messaging warning about the dangers of drinking while pregnant. Each test in the machines will cost $2, with the money going back into supplying the dispensers. The community partners have also distributed coasters and table tent cards adorned with FASD awareness messages to several bars in the area.
