Unconscious, unresponsive. The 911 caller is advising that her friend won’t wake up.
It’s a dispatch all-too-familiar to local EMTs.
For Spencer County Emergency Medical Services, responding to a heroin overdose has become a once or twice-a-week routine, EMS director Chris Limpp says.
“In the past year, we’ve seen more heroin in Spencer County than I’ve seen in the rest of the time I’ve been here.”
Three residents died from heroin overdose last fall.
