WCU Student One of Chester County’s Key Figures in Fight Against Opioids
Ethan Healey, 21, of West Chester, is already known as one of Chester County’s key figures in fighting the opioid crisis, writes Gil Cohen for The Pottstown Mercury.
Healey has several public service duties in the county, including Law Enforcement Liaison/Project Naloxone Manager at Good Fellowship Ambulance & EMS Training Institute.
This makes him a key source for both police departments and private citizens for information on opioid abuse, opioid overdose symptoms and treatment, and the proper administration of Naloxone. The drug also known as Narcan is widely used to reverse opioid overdoses.
Healey is also a full-time telecommunications officer at the West Goshen Township police department, and he spends his weekends as a career emergency medical technician with Good Fellowship Ambulance. He’s also a full-time business management student at West Chester University.
To deal with opioid addiction, Healey is a fervent and unrelenting advocate of education and training.
“There are too many people my age who are dying from overdosing on opioids,” he said. “I want to educate as many people as possible about perils of opioid usage.”
