Naloxone Saves Moses Lake Man’s Life

The Grant County Sheriff’s office had their first chance to deploy the anti-opioid Naloxone in a real life situation less than a week after being trained on its use.

In a Facebook post the department says a deputy arrived last Thursday at a Bong Loop residence and found a man whose breathing had dangerously slowed.

The deputy gave the man one dose of Naloxone which within minutes caused the man’s condition to improve.

Sheriff Tom Jones said having Naloxone in the hands of trained deputies has already proven to be a life-saving tool.
