Caledon OPP saves local resident by administering Naloxone

June 11, 2020   ·   0 Comments

In the last week, uniformed members from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a report of a possible overdose in the Town of Caledon.

The incident was reported by a family member advising that an individual was displaying signs of a drug overdose and that medical assistance was required immediately.

Upon officers’ arrival, the individual was unconscious, had extremely shallow breathing and had a very faint pulse. The individual was placed in a recovery position and Naloxone was administered by one of the officers.

The individual began to recover rapidly and was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Caledon OPP would like to remind the public that illegal fentanyl is being mixed with other drugs, such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, MDMA and illicit cannabis. This is especially dangerous because people are often unaware that fentanyl has been added.

Fentanyl is an extremely potent synthetic opioid prescribed to manage acute and chronic pain. Fentanyl is approximately 100 times more potent than morphine and 40 times more potent than heroin.

On Thursday, June 4th, at approximately 11:37 p.m. officers from the Community Response Unit of the Caledon OPP were conducting speed enforcement in the area of Highway 10 and Forks of the Credit Road in the Town of Caledon.

It was determined that the speed of the vehicle was significantly exceeding 50 km/h over the posted speed limit in the area. The vehicle was stopped and investigated for Stunt Driving.                      

While speaking to the driver, the officers detected an odour of alcohol and marijuana. The driver was asked to provide a sampl! e of his breath into an approved roadside screening device, which resulted in a “fail” reading.

Caledon OPP reminds all drivers that the higher the speed of a vehicle, the shorter the time a driver has to stop and avoid a crash. An increase in average speed of 1 km/h typically results in a 3% higher risk of a crash involving injury, with a 4-5% increase for crashes that result in fatalities.
