A woman owes her life to the training and quick action of two members of the Kamloops Central BIA’s downtown ambassador team.
During a regular patrol near the 500 block of Victoria Street on Wednesday (April 11, 2018) afternoon, Customer Care and Patrol members Angela Halas and Jon George came upon a woman who had collapsed.
Halas and George immediately began CPR and administered Naloxone. The woman was then taken by ambulance to hospital.
“A lot was accomplished while saying very little to each other and I think that speaks to the teamwork that we strive for,” said Jon George.
Halas added that their training paid off, and the two “Cappies” were able to rely on each other.
Among the organizations that train the team are the Canadian Mental Health Association, Ask Wellness, RCMP and Interior Health.
KCBIA executive director Carl DeSantis said there’s no question that George and Halas saved the woman’s life.
