The City Council on Tuesday approved the acceptance of the First Responder Naloxone grant totaling $11,319.80 from the Massachusetts Department of Health and Human Services for the purchase of life saving Narcan in an effort to prevent opioid overdose deaths.

“Access to this life saving medicine will allow first responders to be properly prepared as we deal with the opioid addiction crisis in our area,” said Fire Chief Dean Desmarais.

“I appreciate the Baker Administrations commitment to addressing this crisis,” said Mayor Kos. “Working with our State Delegation we are building and improving our efforts to respond appropriately to such crisis.”
