Slave Lake RCMP have issued a warning about opioids.
They say they have dealt with three overdoses in the last four days.
One person, a 37 year old man, died. Two others were revived after police say they got calls of people in respiratory distress.
“Our primary concern and our number one priority is always public safety,” says Slave Lake RCMP Sgt. Marlene Brown. “These recent cases have raised concern for us that there may be something very dangerous circulating in our community. I want to urge anyone that might choose to take opioids such as fentanyl to please rethink that choice”.
