DCNR rangers to carry Naloxone

Pennsylvania park rangers are going to start carrying naloxone, which can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.  Governor Tom Wolf made the announcement this week, explaining that the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will train state park and state forest rangers on how to use the drug to minimize overdose fatalities.  Wolf says rural areas, including state parks and forests, are not immune to the opioid epidemic.  There have been seven drug-related deaths on DCNR lands since 2015.
