Records Breached: 

Unknown

Hundreds of sheets were found inside of folders in improperly discarded boxes.  The sheets were easily visible and accessible through sliding doors on either side of the dumpster and a firefighter alerted a local newspaper to the incident.  The records contained names, Social Security numbers, payroll information, addresses, phone numbers, insurance information, dates of birth, and medical histories from employees and former patients of the Ambulance Association.  It appears that all of the records are from 2003 and 2004.  An Ambulance Association officer admitted to placing the boxes in a dumpster rather than following usual procedure and shredding them.
