Narcan training proves life-saving in Naperville heroin overdose

Two Naperville police officers had a chance to put their newly acquired death-thwarting skill into practice Jan. 23, when they responded to a report of a teenaged girl in the throes of a drug overdose.

Officers Jason Duffy and Jeremy Womack were credited with saving the life of the 17-year-old, who was found unconscious in the bedroom of an apartment in the 700 block of Benedetti Drive just before 10:30 p.m., police said.

Duffy and Womack delivered a nasal dose of naloxone, marketed under the trade name Narcan, and the girl regained consciousness before Naperville Fire Department paramedics arrived and took her to Edward Hospital for treatment.

The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2015, which has yet to be voted on in the Senate, included a provision inserted by Kinzinger and Foster that allows Will County to continue using the 455-acre dump on the site of the former Joliet Arsenal through 2041.
