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.
