Medical Emergencies Due to Drug Overdose

On July 27, 2023, police responded to multiple calls for service regarding individuals in destress due to drug overdoses. In two of these calls, Narcan was administered to two individuals in need. In total, 11 doses of Narcan were administered as a life saving measure. In one of these incidents, at about 10:00PM, officers administered 8 doses of Narcan in conjunction with the deliberator in giving aid to a subject at the Days Inn. These actions by the officers saved this person’s life. Thankfully, Paramedics attended with their expertise and escorted the male to the Brockville General Hospital where he is recovering. This is another great example of the excellent work by all the dedicated first responders in our area; and an important reminder of the dangers of substance use.
