Gov. Wolf Declares Emergency Due To The Heroin And Opioid Epidemic

January 11, 2018

Governor Tom Wolf on Wednesday said it is time for the next step in fighting Pennsylvania’s heroin and opioid crisis, so he declared a state of emergency.

Radio PA News reports the 90-day declaration does not really provide more than the state was already doing for the problem, but the Governor told them he hopes it will help various Commonwealth departments focus more effectively on what some call the biggest public health crisis in generations.

The declaration will allow the waiver of some regulations, including one which previously had prevented emergency medical services personnel from leaving behind the overdose reversal drug Naloxone after they treat an overdose.
