Naloxone for Law Enforcement

GFAC NALOXONE ADMINISTRATION REPORTING FORM (New to be used by police  April 1, 2016)

News Release 05152015 – New

Good Fellowship Ambulance & EMS Training Institute is committed to saving lives. The opiate epidemic is on the rise across our nation and here in Chester County. Since 1990, the incidences of drug overdoses have nearly tripled.[1]  Everyday 100 people die of drug overdoses in the United States.[2] Many of these lives could have been saved with a miracle drug called Naloxone (commonly known as Narcan). The Good Fellowship Board of Directors has graciously approved funding for a project we created called “Project Narcan”. Project Narcan provides police departments in Chester County Naloxone for each of their units as well training on how to administer the drug at NO COST. When the officer has used the drug, Good Fellowship will replace the Naloxone at no cost to the department. Currently, Good Fellowship Ambulance & EMS Training Institute has over thirty-five police departments participating in the program with more and more departments joining the fight each day.  Our program is one of two programs in the entire state to be approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs. Any police department interested in participating in the program may contact Ethan Healey at ehealey@goodfellowship.org
