Retail security comes to the rescue

In November 2023, Security Officer Parmar was on duty at Conestoga Mall, when he was advised of an unconscious male in a washroom stall. Responding immediately, Officer Parmer removed the man from the stall, and discovered drugs and drug paraphernalia on the ground beside him.

The individual was unresponsive to voice and touch, and 911 was contact for an EMT response.

Officer Parmar administered a dose of Narcan, with no response. He then administered a second and third dose, after which the man became responsive to touch.

The man was treated on-scene by EMTs and then transported to hospital.

Thank you, Security Officer Parmar, for immediately recognizing the signs of overdose. Your quick action saved this man’s life!.
