Canton EMTs respond to rash of overdose calls


Canton emergency personnel responded to four drug overdose calls in a six-day span last week. Three of the victims were male and one was a female, and in each instance the opiate reversal drug Narcan was successfully administered. In one of the cases, a 45-year-old Canton man was found unresponsive after crashing his vehicle into a fire hydrant on November 15 around 11 a.m. EMTs revived the man with Narcan and police later charged him with drug and property damage offenses.

Firefighters investigate suspicious package

Canton firefighters responded to a report of a suspicious package at a commercial property at 250 Royall Street on Tuesday morning, November 14, around 9 a.m. A state HazMat response team was also called in, but the package was determined not to be a threat. No injuries were reported. Also last week, on Thursday, November 16, Canton firefighters responded to a mutual aid call for a two-alarm fire at a commercial building in Avon. The call came in around 7 p.m. and firefighters from Engine 3 worked to extinguish the fire and assisted with overhaul operations. No injuries were reported.
