Williamson County EMS, Sheriff’s Office work together to combat opioid overdoses
Matt Biasatti, captain of clinical practices for Williamson County EMS, trained seven Sheriff’s Office deputies last Monday on the administration of Narcan, an opioid anecdote. The course was offered in response to an increase in lethal opioid overdoses nationwide and a rising concern of deputies accidentally coming into contact with drugs classified as opioids – which include heroin, hydrocodone, oxycodone and fentanyl. “[Opioid overdose] is a pretty big issue nationwide,” Biasatti said. “It’s not an issue [in Williamson County] yet, but that’s not to say it won’t be soon. It’s really a matter of when, not if.”
