More and more police in Halifax are getting the Naloxone drug overdose kits. Metro reports about 70 RCMP officers have them and 15 Halifax police cars are carrying them…but the force is working on getting nasal kits which are easier to administer.
Two people in HRM overdosed on fentanyl last week bringing the total here this year to over 50. Police are carrying the anti-overdose kits in case they are affected. Miniscule amounts of fentanyl can kill.
