BLACKFOOT, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - A Blackfoot Police Department K9 has been awarded a Naloxone/Narcan overdose kit and trauma kit.
K9 Ryder, a Belgian Malinois and German Shepherd mix, and Officer Chad Braswell received the kit by K9s of Valor.
The Naloxone overdose kit comes with a NarCase which will allow Officer Braswell to carry it on his duty belt ready to go. This kit will reverse the effects of an overdose due to exposure from dangerous drugs such as fentanyl, and the trauma kit will treat major traumatic injuries until they can reach an emergency veterinarian hospital.
