Please lock your doors

RRV with blue lights

On Tuesday (9th September) a female member of staff on standby in Essex was approached by a male member of the public who proceeded to make sexually explicit comments and suggestions to her.

The member of staff, who was solo-responding, rightly notified EOC and made to drive to the nearest ambulance station, at which point the man tried to get into the back of the vehicle. Unsuccessful, he then followed the member of staff back to the ambulance station before driving off. 

The incident has been reported to the police but all staff, particularly those in Essex, are asked to be extra alert and wherever possible to keep vehicle doors locked at all times. Staff safety is paramount so please take precautions to protect yourself and be aware you can call EOC if you need police assistance at any time.
