Gadsden State police, security vehicles equipped with AEDs, Narcan

GADSDEN — Taking a proactive approach to campus security, Gadsden State Community College has equipped its police and Public Safety Department vehicles with Automated External Defibrillators and Narcan, an opioid overdose reversal medication.

“This is a significant enhancement in our emergency response capabilities,” said Chief
Jay Freeman. “This ensures that our team can promptly and effectively respond to
medical emergencies across all five campuses located in three counties.”

To further strengthen the department’s readiness, a Cardinal Safety Training Program
has been developed.

“This comprehensive program is available to all Gadsden State employees and includes
essential training in the use of AEDs, Narcan and CPR,” he said.

Freeman said adequately equipping the emergency-response vehicles in conjunction
with the Cardinal Safety program reflects the College’s commitment to the safety and
well-being of those in the communities it serves.

“We are dedicated to continuously enhancing our skills and resources to ensure we can
respond effectively to emergencies,” he said. “These initiatives are a testament to our
proactive approach to safeguarding our campuses and supporting the health and
security of everyone at Gadsden State.”
