Reginald Freeman, Chief of the Hartford Fire Department, would like to recognize the efforts and personnel of the Emergency Services division for their life saving and professional administering of naloxone (also known as Narcan) since November of 2015. Out of 172 instances that the drug has been used in unresponsive and non-breathing patients, 135 lives have been saved. That number equates to a 78.5% save rate. Narcan (naloxone) is a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose. It is reflective of the training and recognition of the need for the drug by our first responders that 135 people are still with their families and loved ones.
The Hartford Fire Department is committed to providing the best emergency response care to its residents and visitors. The utilization of this life saving drug has assisted the fire department in meeting the standard of the department's motto.
After getting fed up with the lack of openness in Hartford City Hall, I decided to begin a program on Hartford Public Access Television called "WE THE PEOPLE". Through tips received we have been able to expose numerous issues that the Perez Administration would prefer to keep quiet.
Any information received is kept in strict confidence, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 860-883-2297 with any information.
