Emergency Health Services is asking for the public’s help to find a medication pouch reported missing from one of its ambulances on Tuesday, Nov. 25.
An EHS paramedic crew was working between Liverpool and Halifax when they noticed a small black pouch containing medication was missing.
The medication is extremely dangerous if used by people who are not trained health-care professionals. If someone finds the pouch, they should immediately call EHS at 1-888-346-9999, or any RCMP detachment or local police so the medication can be secured safely.
If the drugs are ingested or injected, call 911 immediately.
EHS has reported the incident to the Lunenburg County District RCMP.
