In fact, Campanello said Gloucester has been awarded a regional grant to mentor two other communities with the city’s work in overdose prevention and substance abuse education. He said nasal Narcan is carried in the cruisers, all Fire Department apparatus and ambulances, and administered as needed. “We have no plans to discontinue the program,” Campanello said.
