Minneapolis Fire adds the ability to treat overdose patients
The Fire Department added Narcan to its complement of medical services provided in Minneapolis. The drug can reverse an overdose from heroin and other opioid-based drugs and medications. In the first week, the Fire Department’s medical response teams saved seven lives with it. The Fire Department administers a vaporized version of the treatment nasally. The cost of the drug treatments and a portion of the training costs are being reimbursed by the Minnesota Metropolitan Emergency Services Board.
