Palermo, CA- On Thursday, March 28, 2019, at approximately 3:11 a.m., Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) deputies responded to a residence on the 2400 block of Bohemia Avenue in Palermo on a report of a possible overdose. When deputies arrived on scene, they found a 47-year-old woman unresponsive. A witness on the scene reported the woman had recently used an unknown amount of heroin. The woman had a pulse but would not respond to verbal or physical stimuli, and the deputy noticed obvious signs of an opioid overdose. The deputy then retrieved his county issued NARCAN, which is a drug that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. The deputy administered one dose. The woman’s health began to improve within seconds and she began responding to verbal and physical stimuli. EMS responded to the scene moments later and the woman was transported to a local hospital where she was treated and released.
All BCSO deputies have been trained and certified to carry and administer the potentially lifesaving drug in overdose situations. NARCAN was provided to BCSO through a collaboration with Butte County Public Health.
