Ada County Paramedics’ employees have pooled money from their paychecks for a program called Paramedics and Plastic Bags. The group has purchased items to include in care kits, which include snacks, bottled water, gloves, hand warmers, toothbrush and paste, deodorant, shampoo, hand sanitizer and soap.

Each of the organization’s ambulances will be stocked with the kits, to be handed out by paramedics when they encounter a person who might benefit from the items provided in each care kit.
