2nd NARCAN® Deployment by Weld County Deputy

On 04/16/2017 at approximately 7:45 pm Weld County deputies were dispatched to a call in the 6000 block of WCR 34 involving a male patient who had reportedly overdosed on an unknown substance. Upon arrival deputies saw an unresponsive 56 year old male patient who was not breathing and had no pulse.

At approximately 7:57 pm deputies began giving CPR and administered NARCAN®.  At approximately 8:06 pm the patient was breathing again and had a strong pulse. He was transported to Longmont United Hospital by medical personnel for further treatment.

The identity of the patient will not be released.

The Weld County Sheriff’s Office recently began distributing NARCAN® to Patrol Deputies for use on calls such as this one.  The funds used to provide NARCAN® to our deputies comes from Drug Taskforce seizure funds.
