We had a squad stolen once while the crew was inside the residence with the patient.

I am gonna have to make a call or two tomorrow and find out the real story.



Oxygen doesn't have to be kept at temperature.  The A.E.D. Does because of the battery in addition to drugs.




He is a moron for not locking the door and leaving the keys in it though.

Does not sound strange to me.   We would leave  our rigs running if they are out of the station any length of time.   This is in winter.

I just invented a circular piece of steel attached to a metallic object that opens locks.

I call it a Second Key So You Can Leave Your Car Engine Running And Not Be A Moron.

I'm going to patent it.

It's winter. Frozen drugs suck.  Sounds like he got lazy and didn't lock it up.  


wonder if there were narcs on board when it was stolen.  Wonder if the narc key is on the same key ring as was in the ignition.

What sounds odd? We leave our vehicle s running and unlocked unless it is the nicest 65 degree day you can imagine.

Engine running, high idle, no problems.

Our ambulances here have a mechanism to leave them running with the key out. Try to pull it out of park without the key in it, it dies. I don't understand why he didn't have the same thing.

probably SOP, just like at wildfires, all vehicles are backed in and keys left in the ignition so they can be moved if things change...

LAZY and yes I work for a FD.

Obviously a chief's vehicle would be different, but our engine's don't have keys, much less doorlocks.

Drunk kids stole the chiefs' Tahoe.

One of ours does, the rest don't.  Why?  We buy hand-me-down shit and run it to the ground, then replace it with more hand-me-down shit.

Some departments get what they can, not what they want.

Sounds more like this just isn't something he ever considered.  Not that hard to have a spare key made so you can keep it running and locked.

edit:  Shit, our cab doors are electric but the back can only be locked with a key.  Having the back doors locked on scene creates enough of an issue when we only have one spare key that it's usually left unlocked on scene.  No one could drive away with the ambulance but they could get in to the back and steal whatever they wanted.  Fortunately I'm not a paramedic so I don't have to worry about any narcs getting swiped.

Back in the day I remember an ambulance stolen outside detox, and a fire truck tagged by a graffiti artist while on a call.

You know that gang banger was the cool one of the group for a couple of days.

He left the vehicle running when he went into the firehouse to check on his guys for " 2 minutes" according to a Newsday article. He could have shut it off when he went inside.
The vehicle was stolen before 100 AM and they went to the Huntington area where they drove off without paying for $92 in gas about 4 hours later.  A retired cop called in the vehicle around 530 AM  in the Miller Place area but the police where unable to locate the vehicle until later.
On the article linked it says he was checking on his guys. The updated article says  "I got a call to assist on a [paramedic] call, I ran out to get my car, and it just wasn't there," he continued. "The cameras caught it all, I mean, it was pretty simple. They just jumped in and took it."
Which is it?

And as an update....



The chiefs vehicle had OnStar.  The fucking cops and vollies could have shut it off and located it at any time.  Morons.



I am also a vollie on LI here.  I find it hard to believe that the $60,000 vehicle did not have a remote start.  It freaking LI.  



But taking it from a vollie house is a ballsy move.  Usually there are 1-3 cops hanging out at any given time.  LOL
