Police and fire chiefs went before the Littleton School Board

LITTLETON — Following the triple fatal overdose two weeks ago, the police and fire chiefs and Greg Williams of North Country Health Consortium went before the Littleton School Board to suggest that Narcan, the anti-overdose agent to instantly reverse respiratory shutdown when seconds count, be more widely accessible in schools. Currently, Narcan, also called Nalaxone, is kept in the nurse’s office. But that will change after the Littleton School Board, during its meeting on Monday, approved the recommendation following a “save a life” presentation in the high school band room that began with Littleton Police Chief Paul Smith, who painted a stark picture of what the community is facing.
