Unauthorized St. John Ambulance Kit Alert

    Consumers warned to buy authorized first aid kits only

    OTTAWA, March 2 /CNW/ - St. John Ambulance is warning consumers and
industries to be cautious when purchasing industrial first aid kits.
International Secure Technologies is selling first aid kits to unsuspecting
small- to medium-sized business owners and consumers which are branded under
St. John Ambulance. These are not St. John Ambulance kits. St. John Ambulance
is taking the necessary legal steps to stop the sale of these counterfeit
kits, but feels the public needs to know that the International Secure
Technologies continues to falsely represent itself by co-branding and selling
St. John Ambulance kits without SJA's knowledge and authorization, and at
inflated prices. Further, in at least some cases, the kits have been sold
through negative billing practices. St. John Ambulance does not use such
practices. If you are contacted by International Secure Technologies, please
contact your local police detachment and your local St. John Ambulance branch
at www.sja.ca/english/offices/.

almost 125 years. Our first aid kits are carefully designed, tested and
packaged to ensure quick and simple access to the supplies needed in an
emergency. St. John Ambulance first aid kits meet all provincial workplace and
