Lifesaving drug added to EMS program
   
Monday, May 26, 2014 
-
A drug used to revive patients who are suffering from heroin overdoses has been added to the QFC EMS fleet. Tonight, Narcan was placed on Ambulances 9151 and 9152 as well as Car 91-1. Steps taken by QFC to allow this drug to be added included the training of 12 EMTs to use it as well as registering our agency with the State Dept of Health. Lets hope we don't need to use it as the State of New Jersey deals with the biggest health crisis, the use of heroin in communities.
