Falck sent ABC 10News a statement Monday afternoon:
On Friday, July 7, we learned that an employee had been charged with breaking into a residence in San Diego while off-duty. That individual, Nick Conniry, is no longer employed by Falck. He had been a paramedic with Falck since October 2021. We’re cooperating fully with law enforcement and have informed our partners at the fire department. Nothing is more important to Falck than people’s health and safety in the communities we serve, and it is important for people to know that they are safe.
