New Protocols Set For FAS

New protocols set for Firelands Ambulance Service by Ashland University Hospital have changed the number of doses of narcan carried by crews for overdoses, according to Jeff Vanderpool FAS clerk/trainer.

In the past we carried additional doses just for our crews. He said the reason for that is the danger to first responders from fentanyl and carfentenil. Both are hundreds and thousands times more potent than heroin and can be absorbed through the skin causing and overdose.
