Allegan Co. deputies to carry naloxone

ALLEGAN, Mich. (WOOD) — Deputies with the Allegan County Sheriff’s  Office are going to start carrying overdose-reversing drug naloxone.

The  department will have enough units of the drug to equip the entire  patrol, detective and administrative divisions, which were obtained  through a grant from Kaleo Pharmaceuticals.

Those who will be  carrying the drug were trained by The Grand Rapids Red Project, a  non-profit organization that works to prevent overdoses and HIV.

Three  nurses with the Allegan County Health Department received instruction  to become trainers to “facilitate on-going training needs.”
