Firefighter investigated for Facebook post against Narcan, addicts

The firefighter called Narcan the worst drug ever created and suggested letting overdose victims die


WEYMOUTH, Mass. — A firefighter is under investigation after posting a Facebook status criticizing addicts and the drug Narcan.

WCVB reported that the Weymouth, Mass. firefighter called Narcan, an overdose-reversing drug, the “worst drug ever created.” The post also suggests letting overdose victims die.

“I for one get no extra money for giving Narcan and these losers are out of the hospital and using again in hours,” the post said. “You use, you should lose!”

Fire Chief Keith Stark received emails from several upset residents. Some flooded the department’s Facebook page calling the firefighter disgraceful and saying he should lose his job.

“The comments posted do not reflect the philosophy or values we hold as a fire department or town,” Chief Stark said. “The incident remains under investigation.”
