PLEASE WATCH – IT’S GETTING WORSE –  

Oct. 27, 2021 – “All of a sudden, [women] become every single role of the family. They had to become the sole provider; they had to become the teacher; they had to be everything.”

From 2020 to 2021, Reese said the Shreveport Fire Department has not seen an uptick in the use of Narcan.

“Roughly last year, we’ve given 200 doses of Narcan; right now, 2021, we’re at about 158,” he explained.

Reese said the fire department has responded to 26 overdose cases. It is important to note the department may use Narcan in other emergencies, as well. Fort said CADA helps supply Narcan to local law enforcement, hospitals and other places that may need it.
