Reminder to look out for thieves targeting vehicles

Ambulance side shot

Opportunistic thieves are once again targeting our vehicles to steal medical gases and/or drugs.

Recently, incidents have occurred when ambulances are outside hospitals, whilst parked at a petrol station, and even whilst a crew was sitting in the cab writing up notes.

Please can you all be vigilant whilst parked at ANY location and ALWAYS lock the vehicle even if you are sitting in the cab (if possible).

Opportunistic thieves are getting bolder in their attempts to steal drugs and medical gases.

Please make sure that vehicles and station stores are kept secure and checked regularly, and that any damage or suspicious activity is reported to your manager via Datix, Anne Wright, the LSMS, and the police as soon as possible.

Staff are reminded to ensure all estates gas cabinets are kept locked and secure, and the lighting is working above them.
