Paramedic kit stolen as first responders answer medical call
The Nanaimo RCMP is investigating the theft of a BC Paramedic’s medical kit. The case (shown above) was taken at approximately 3 am on Monday September 14, 2020, while a BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) crew was responding to a medical call at the Nanaimo Value Lodge, located at 736 Nicol St.
The hard shelled black plastic case contained an assortment of medical supplies including life-saving drugs such as Narcan, epinephrine and blood pressure equipment, needed to respond to patients every day.
