Thanks To VCSO's Recent Training Program

"Blessed Are The Peacemakers:
For They Shall Be Called The Children Of God"
- Matthew 5:9

According to a recent Daytona Beach News Journal article Volusia Sheriff Deputy Brandon Coker saved a Pierson woman from a heroin overdose death early Tuesday by using a nasal spray that had recently been issued to VCSO deputies.

Deputy Coker - along with over 100 other deputies - recently completed a training program on the proper usage of the life saving overdose antidote Naloxone - commonly known as Narcan.

VolusiaExposed.Com has obtained a copy of the VCSO incident report which details the life saving procedure used by Deputy Coker - it's definitely worth a read.

Per a communication with the VCSO - due to Florida's 911 Good Samaritan Act (F.S. 893.21 - see right of page) no one was arrested or criminally charged.

VolusiaExposed.Com invites our readers to watch the informational video provided by the Volusia County Sheriff's Office - which explains both the Narcan program and the Good Samaritan Act.

In our opinion - kudos to law enforcement statewide for the the Narcan program and the Good Samaritan Act.

Finally - kudos to Deputy Brandon Coker - for saving this woman's life and for being a credit to both his profession and agency.

Stand by to stand by - there are surely more lives to be saved ....
