(UNDATED) - With a quick and simple squirt of naloxone or Narcan into the nostrils of a person overdosing on certain types of drugs, police officers have a better chance of saving that person's life.

Thanks to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, naloxone kits will be available to officers with Seymour and Brownstown police departments and the Jackson County Sheriff's Department to use when responding to suspected drug overdoses.

About 40 officers spent Tuesday morning in a classroom at the Jackson County Learning Center learning more about how, when and why to use Narcan. They even got to practice giving the medication to Schneck's patient simulation models.
