dumb bunny. it's supposed to go up the nose, not up the butt.

Today the Seattle Police Department, together with The Marah Project and the University of Washington announced an initiative equipping bike officers with Nasal Naloxone (also known as Narcan) in an effort to decrease deaths from opiate overdoses. This program updates dispatch protocols and allows bike officers in the East, West and North precincts to administer Narcan reversing the effects of a heroin or pharmaceutical opioid overdose.
Under the new policy, 60 bike officers will be trained to administer Narcan on scene for a six to eight month initiative. Upon use, officers will monitor the subject until the Seattle Fire Department (SFD) arrives and inform SFD of the Narcan application. The SPD joins a number of departments across the country issuing Narcan.
since that announcement in march of last year, spd officers have saved the lives of eight OD victims. Nice.
Also a very stable genius.
