Police Soon To Carry Narcan Kits To Reverse Opioid Overdoses

SAN BRUNO (BCN)

San Bruno police will soon carry Naloxone Hydrochloride, commonly called Narcan, to help treat opioid overdoses.

Narcan kits will be issued to all sworn officers in the department within the next few weeks pending completion of training, according to the San Bruno Police Department.

The kits’ use by police officers is intended as a “critical bridge” of care until paramedics arrive to begin treatment, Lt. Troy Fry said.
