Bismarck police vehicle

Police, fire and ambulance personnel revived two Bismarck men with Narcan in separate incidents Wednesday. 

Officers responded to a medical assist around 10 a.m. Wednesday to an apartment on the 300 block of West Arbor Avenue where a 28-year-old man reportedly overdosed on heroin in a bathtub.

Police administered two doses of Narcan before fire and ambulance personnel arrived. Metro Area Ambulance took the man to the hospital.

Around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to an apartment complex on the 1100 block of West Capitol Way for a 25-year-old man who had fainted. The caller said he needed Narcan.

Fire personnel arrived first and administered Narcan. Police arrived as the man was conscious. 

It's unknown what substance the man ingested.

Narcan is the nasal form of Naloxone, which reverses opioid overdoses.
