Security plea after nitrous oxide thefts

Ambulance side shot

We’re asking colleagues to be extra vigilant with the storage and security of nitrous oxide cylinders this week, after reports that thieves in Essex have been targeting hospitals to steal the gas containers.

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

If used incorrectly the gas, commonly known as ‘laughing gas’, can be very dangerous and has been known to lead to addiction and serious brain damage.
