Received Donation

Trinity Family Church in Red Bud invited Red Bud Police Chief John Brittingham to lunch on Sept. 24, and presented him with a donation of seven Narcan kits (intranasal Naloxone) for the Red Bud Police Department. Naloxone, often sold under the brand name Narcan, is a medication used to block the effects of opioids, especially in overdose cases. The effects of Naloxone last about half an hour to an hour. Multiple doses may be required, as the duration of action of most opioids is greater than that of Naloxone. The police department greatly appreciates this donation.
