As of tonight, The Garden City Fire Company will be carrying Naloxone (Narcan) on our apparatus to help fight the Opioid crisis. Thanks to the Delaware County District Attorney Office for providing us with this life saving medication to better serve Nether Providence Township.
Tonight 30 members participated in a training that is focused on recognizing the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose, and the administration of Naloxone.
Again, thank you to the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office and D.A. Jack Stollsteimer for providing us with this lifesaving medication.

You know this hits home for me and it really means a lot that instead of hiding behind the stigma you are providing hope for the community. Addiction can happen to ANYONE and EVERYONE deserves a chance to live. 💙
I believe you and Chester Fire Department are the first non EMS departments to be carrying Naloxone.
Thank God for narcan
