SCSO now has opioid overdose drug on hand

SULLIVAN CO, TN (WJHL) – The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office now has Narcan on hand.

Sheriff Wayne Anderson says his department received the life-saving opioid overdose drug Friday, getting 108 units of Narcan through a Blue Cross, Blue Shield grant.

“This is not only for the people out here that overdose, it could be one of our officers that gets into carfentanil or fentanyl and that’s very dangerous,” Sheriff Wayne Anderson said.

Anderson said he will distribute Narcan to all of his officers this week.
