Firefighters to Carry Naloxone

Posted on: February 16th, 2016

On January 29th, 2016 the Ministry of Health announced a new initiative which will see specially trained and licensed firefighters in BC permitted to carry and administer naloxone in drug overdose emergency cases.

This move is in response to the increasing number of overdoses occurring across the province and will be overseen by BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS).

For further information contact Barbara Fitzsimmons (barbara.fitzsimmons@bcehs.ca) or Nancy Kotani (nancy.kotani@bcehs.ca) directly.
