All of the equipment in the stolen bag is crucial to Jackson County EMS being able to do their job.
From basic equipment used on every patient encounter, such as equipment to check vital signs, pulse, blood pressure, respiration and blood sugar--to life saving items such as equipment to give oxygen, ventilate and to establish an IV.
Michael Canada, Public Information Officer for Jackson County EMS, was devastated to know people would steal from people who are helping those in distress.
"As everybody knows an ambulance is for medical emergencies when people are sick or hurt. It's very that disappointing someone would do that, potentially put someone else in need at risk," said Canada.
The incident took place around 8:30 Wednesday night while the ambulance workers were on their dinner break.
The back door to the ambulance was not locked making it easily accessible since it is the patient compartment.
Canada says no one has ever stolen anything from one of their ambulances before but he says they are going to be more vigilant how and where they park their ambulances from now on, to avoid this happening in the future.
"I don't know what anybody would want to try to do with any of this equipment because without specialized medical training it would really be of no value to anyone," said Canada.
Not only is this a financial loss to the agency it is a loss to the community.
Canada says it is unbelievable that someone would steal valuable life saving equipment that people in the community depend on for medical emergencies.
As of Friday night Altus police do not have any leads but it is still an ongoing investigation.
If you know anything about where their green bag could be or any of the items that were inside it, call the Jackson County EMS at 580-477-4112.
The loss of the equipment in the bag will not prevent Jackson County EMS from being able to make medical emergency calls. It just means they no longer have a spare bag of equipment in case something were to happen to another one.
