Drug Awareness

Feb 22, 2019

Over the past week the Brantford Police Service has assisted Emergency Medical Services in regards to several suspected drug overdoses.  These individuals suffered apparent drug overdoses and had to be treated medically.
The Branford Police Service is asking that the community be made aware of these occurrences and risks of drug use.  Please use caution when using any type of drug that is not prescribed to you.  If you are a new drug user you are particularly at risk should you use drugs that may be cut with or contain Fentanyl.
If you think someone is suffering from a drug overdose, call 9-1-1- immediately. If available give the person Naloxone. Naloxone is an emergency medication that temporarily reverses the effects of an overdose from opioids such as fentanyl, heroin, methadone, morphine. You can give naloxone while you wait for emergency services to arrive. Remember naloxone can temporarily reverse an overdose but it can wear off before the person has completely recovered. Always call 9-1-1 and be treated by Emergency Medical Services.   If you yourself have taken drugs or have drugs on you, the Good Samaritan Law can protect you.  
While the BPS advises against using illicit drugs, people who choose to use them should:
 *never use alone
 *start with a small amount
 *do not mix substances, including alcohol, as it increases risk of overdose
 *call 911 right away if they think someone is overdosing
 *make a plan and know how to respond in case of an overdose
 *use where help is easily available
 *be prepared to give breaths and/or administer Naloxone until help  
  arrives. Have a kit accessible at all times and KNOW how to use it.

Know the signs of an overdose:
 *Can’t stay awake
 *No strength or energy
 *Cold, clammy skin
 *Slow heartbeat
 * Trouble breathing
 *Slow, shallow breathing
 *Gurgling or snoring sounds
 *lips and/or fingernails blue or purple
 *non-responsive to shouting
For more information please visit www.FentanylCanKill.ca
If you have information about suspected drug activity please contacts Sgt. Greg STANLEY at 519-756-0113 ext. 2286.
