Putnam County Sheriff's Deputies Trained to Administer "Narcan"

Narcan trainingNarcan training

Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith reports that he has instituted a new life-saving program within the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office is the first law enforcement agency in the county to receive Narcan training. Each sworn member of the department is receiving training in administering Naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, by Thomas Lannon and Robert Cuomo, certified instructors from the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services.

Narcan is a special narcotic drug that reverses the effects of other narcotic substances to include heroin. It is often used to treat drug overdose or diagnostic narcotic drug addiction. Previously, Narcan was only allowed to be used by paramedics or physicians because it is a prescription drug. However, now emergency first responders can be trained to carry and administer the drug to combat the epidemic of opiate-related deaths in our area.
