Virginia gives first responders new tool to fight heroin overdoses

Virginia WJLA - Jeff Goldberg - Wed, 01 Jul 2015 20:27:00 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) - A series of bills passed the General Assembly this year in Richmond to battle the growing problem of heroin and prescription drugs, including one dealing with a prescription that firefighters have been using for decades.

Now, police have the option and they&rsquo:re taking a serious look.

Fairfax County Fire Captain John Chesek says the prescription drug Naloxone, often known by its brand name Narcan, is the go-to tool for counteracting the effect of a heroin or prescription drug overdose.

&ldquo:Without this medication you&rsquo:re gonna go into cardiac arrest and death if it&rsquo:s untreated,&rdquo: Chesek said.

The drug&rsquo:s success, combined with a heroin epidemic that has claimed more than 3 thousand lives in Virginia over the past 5 years, has led to a new pilot project starting today.

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring is promoting the plan, which now allows any law enforcement agency in the Commonwealth to use Naloxone, with immunity should a problem arise.

&ldquo:Working together we&rsquo:re gonna turn this problem around&rdquo:, said Herring.

Fairfax County Police Chief Ed Roessler says Fire &: EMS does an excellent job of responding to overdose emergencies. But the problem is growing, and Narcan is one solution. :

&ldquo:So what we&rsquo:re looking at is some of our intelligence: where are we seeing most of these overdose cases and can we look at specialty units in the police department to be equipped with Narcan on a pilot project to see if we&rsquo:re making any difference,&rdquo: Roessler said.

Virginia WJLA - ABC 7 News - Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:15:06 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) -- Dogs headed for a meat farm in Seoul, South Korea have taken a sharp detour, for the better.

In January, the Humane Society International teamed up with northern Virginia animal shelters to stop the impending fate of the 23 dogs heading to Seoul to be sold as meat.

Five months later, the dogs are safely state-side, living in their forever homes or are participating in a foster program, waiting to be adopted.

After being quarantined for a short period, the dogs were finally released, and sent to six local shelters, including Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, Fairfax County Animal Shelter, Loudoun County Animal Service, City of Manassas Animal Control and Adoption Center, and the Washington Animal Rescue League.

Professional photographer Shelley Castle photographed a handful of these dogs.

To learn more or to schedule a meeting with one of the dogs, visit www.awla.org.
