MANSFIELD -- Anne Joudrey and Allison Loeber spent a cold, brisk Saturday afternoon offering to save lives.

The two women, part of Harm Reduction Ohio, spent three hours in Central Park distributing free doses of Narcan -- both the nasal spray and intramuscular injection.

Narcan counteracts opioid overdose, especially when the drug is mixed with fentanyl and/or carfentanil.
