Minot Police warn residents about fentanyl after responding to multiple overdoses

By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - Minot Police are warning residents about fentanyl.

They say they have responded to two calls of overdoses this afternoon and multiple calls of possible overdoses over the past couple days.

They are warning that any contact with fentanyl, even in very small amounts, can lead to an overdose death.

Police say they are aware of the increased number of heroin users in our community, who may not know the heroin they are using may contain fentanyl or understand the dangers involved with the use of fentanyl.

If you find someone who is unconscious or who becomes unconscious and you suspect drug use, call for medical assistance immediately.

Minot police officers carry Narcan, which can be administered and likely save an overdose victim from the potentially deadly situation.
