Firefighters were able to save three of the four by giving them a shot of Naloxone, also known as Narcan, an antidote that can reverse the effects of opiate drug overdoses. The fourth person died, said Public Safety Commissioner Clay Mason.
    More often firefighters are responding to calls about overdoses, and Narcan shots are being administered — and saving lives.
