EVERETT, Wash. — South County Fire is now including training on how to use the overdose-reversing drug Narcan in its first aid and CPR classes to help combat the opioid crisis in Snohomish County.

“Somebody has to call 911, somebody else has to go get help, and if you are the person left there, you have to act,” Larry Hadland, a medical services officer with South County Fire, explained during a CPR class in Everett Wednesday.
