Nalaxone, also known as Narcan, is a prescription drug that can save a person’s life if they are overdosing on opiates like heroin. A bill passed this year by the Indiana General Assembly allows first responders in Indiana to use the drug.

The Fort Wayne Fire Department and EMS have used Narcan on more than 100 overdose patients.

  Rick Machinski is a firefighter at Station 7 in Fort Wayne. He administered Narcan a week ago and thinks it helped save the person’s life.

Indiana has more private sector jobs than ever before, according to the state’s monthly employment report.

There were 2.614 million private sector jobs in Indiana in July, compared to the previous record of 2.612 set in March 2000.

Gov. Mike Pence praised the news in a statement saying it could be attributed to the state’s residents.

“Thanks to hardworking Hoosiers for their resilience, character and the entrepreneurial spirit they bring to work each and every day, Indiana has achieved this goal and set a new record for private sector employment,” he said.
