Declare our town "state of emergency"
In just 10 days police have been called to 30 reported drug overdoses, to include 6 deaths in Fayette County, OH, population 28-thousand. Most of the time when a "state of emergency" is called it pertains to a storm of epic proportions, violent riots, etc. We believe that 6 deaths in 10 days caused by drug use is catastrophic. As you know, when a "state of emergency" is called, resources are more readily available and can drastically help in a dire situation. Please take into consideration our plea, being that we are one of the poorest counties in Ohio-we need support only you can give.
