First application of APD administering Narcan this year saves life of 29 year old man




On Sunday August 14th 2016 at about 5:30pm, the Arcata Police Department responded to a reported drug overdose in the 500 block of South G Street.  Officers located an unconscious 29 year old male who was exhibiting symptoms of Heroin overdose.  Officers began rescue breathing and administered a dosage of Narcan nasal spray, which is a medication that counteracts the effects of opiate overdose.  Officers were able to revive the patient prior to the arrival of medical staff and he was transported to the Mad River Community Hospital in stable condition.
This is the first reported application of the drug, which resulted in the saving of a life for APD, since officers first deployed with the medication earlier this year.

Sheriff Allman, Senator McGuire don't just talk the talk; they are out in the community picking up shovels, releasing trapped horses, helping with the fire fighting efforts

These Sheriff's, Supervisors and elected officials like Senator Mike McGuire got down in the midst of dirt, grime, picked up shovels, did physical work  in the community.

They deserve a shout out.

From Sheriff Tom Allman's facebook page (including photos):

"Things you never expect: this afternoon,  while with Lake County Supervision Rob Brown,  State Senator Mike McGuire,  Fire board of director Jim Comisky, 2 reporters and Peter Armstrong from Ukiah Fire Authority, we found ourselves in an area of the Canyon Fire.  These guys kicked ass. Sheriff Martin was ordering an evacuation, Supervisor Brown and I were releasing trapped horses,  and the others had tools protecting a structure (which was saved). I have the absolute best job,  iv the best area of the world."
