Heroin overdose antidote Narcan to be held on MTA trains
A heroin antidote is going to be onboard MTA trains.
The drug Narcan will be held on trains in the event of a heroin overdose.
The money is coming from a New York Attorney General's program.
At least $40,000 from civil and criminal forfeiture cases will be spent on 670 Narcan kits.
The kits will be carried by MTA officers on the LIRR and Metro-North.
Police officers in Suffolk and Nassau counties already carry Narcan.
