Gov. Bevin, Aetna and Eastern Kentucky Officials Announce Distribution of Narcan to First Responders

On Thursday, August 31, Governor Matt Bevin joined Aetna representatives, along with state and local officials at Hazard City Hall, to announce a partnership that will provide 360 doses of Narcan to first responders in Eastern Kentucky to help prevent opioid overdose-related deaths. The governor expressed gratitude toward Aetna for their donation, saying that we don’t have the luxury of pretending there isn’t a problem, and Aetna is helping us address this issue head on. The kits include two doses of nasal spray Narcan, also known as naloxone, and a pamphlet with directions on how to use it.
