Rolling Meadows Police Narcan Honor at City Hall.

Civilians and firefighter/paramedics and a police officer were honored for two recent medical calls in Rolling Meadows. In each case a life was saved.

Police Department Honors Geunyoung Pak for Narcan Save at Meijer Store
On March 13, 2017 at about 3:40 a.m. for a call for help for a 39 year-old female that was stumbling and staggering in the Meijer store in Rolling Meadows.

While Rolling Meadows police were responding, the woman collapsed in a toy aisle at the Meijer store. She had no pulse and no respiration. Rolling Meadows Police Officer Geunyoung Pak administered a Narcan injection in the woman’s thigh when he believed the woman had possibly overdosed on heroin or another opiate.

After the administration of Narcan, the woman gasped for air and then received further medical treatment from firefighter/paramedics that arrived at the scene. Rolling Meadows Police Chief John Nowacki, who presented the honor to Officer Pak, explained that the woman is alive because of the initial actions of Rolling Meadows Police Officer Geunyoung. Officer Pak, began service for Rolling Meadows Police Department on January 4, 2016, one year before Rolling Meadows Police Department began their Narcan program.
