BERKLEY — A routine call turned life-saving for Detective Dan Meadows as his rapid response and decisive actions rescued an individual from a potentially fatal overdose on Nov. 26.
Responding to an emergency call, Meadows arrived at the scene to find an unresponsive person seated in the front seat of their pickup truck.
With no time to lose, he retrieved his medical kit and Narcan, an emergency medication designed to reverse opioid overdoses.

The detective, demonstrating exceptional skill and composure, immediately administered a second dose of Narcan.
Meanwhile, firefighters provided the individual with oxygen.
Their combined efforts were successful, as the subject regained consciousness and was later transported to the hospital for further care.
