Naloxone for Law Enforcement
(New to be used by police March 13, 2018)
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.  Everyday 100 people die of drug overdoses in the United States.  Many of these lives could have been saved with a miracle drug called Naloxone (commonly known as Narcan). In April 2014, The Good Fellowship Board of Directors graciously approved funding for a project we created called “Project Naloxone”. Project Naloxone 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 ALL forty-six municipal police departments in Chester County, participating in the program. 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. As of January 2018, police officers across Chester County have utilized Naloxone on over 300 occasions to save hundreds of lives.
