Propelled by recent changes at the state level, Canton EMTs now carry Naloxone (Narcan), a drug known to reverse the effects of heroin and other opiate overdoses.

Officials believe Canton is the first non-paramedic service in Connecticut to carry the drug, which results from recent legislation and a state health department decision to expand the scope of practice for EMTs.  That change allows the local EMTs to administer it before paramedics arrive. To carry the drug first responders must gain the approval of their local sponsor hospital, which in this case is UConn Health.  … Continue Reading
