Administrative Policy Release

The Coastal Valleys EMS Agency has released Administrative Policy 4013 Leave Behind Narcan Authorization

When an ambulance or fire service responds to a 911 call for an overdose, First Responder Firefighters, Law Enforcement, EMTs and Paramedics administer Naloxone to prevent a patient from dying, but do not provide any additional Naloxone to treat subsequent overdoses at the emergency scene. 

Coastal Valleys EMS Agency is releasing policy #4013 Leave Behind Naloxone Authorization as a novel approach for EMS and Fire Department participation to help prevent death due to overdoses. The policy will allow EMS and Fire Department providers to implement an agency/department specific Leave Behind Naloxone (LBN) program and provides responders with medical control authorization to leave Naloxone at an emergency scene when the risk of subsequent overdose is suspected.
