The Jan. 6 Shelby County newspaper caught my eye — the headline read, “The Heroin Epidemic.” The bold print read, “2 fatal and up to 10 overdoses in a week.”
Our EMS director came in later that day and I questioned him if our EMS was responding to many overdose calls. He sighed and answered, “Yes, about two a week.”
Working with the public not a lot shocks you, but this did.
