Scott County is on pace to match or exceed the number of heroin and opioid overdoses recorded in 2016, figures compiled by the county’s ambulance service indicate.
“We had three last weekend, one last Friday and two on Sunday,” said Brandon Remley, director of Georgetown-Scott County Emergency Medical Services.
Remley said that from Jan. 1 through March 21, paramedics and EMTs responded to 23 overdose calls.
In the same period last year, Remley said, the ambulance crews handled 19 OD calls.
