There are two main components to the CAP team’s job.
We will clean up drug paraphernalia including needles, naloxone kits, cooking spoons, pipes, and tin foil.
Basic First Aid
First aid refers to the emergency or immediate care provided when a person is injured or ill until full medical treatment is available. For minor conditions, first aid care may be enough. For serious problems, first aid care should be continued until more advanced care becomes available.
We, like any good citizens, can pick up basic litter. Our many other duties prevent us from cleaning large messes on City and private property.
A service we offer to the businesses in our BIA is an escort to/from your car or business. This is accessible between 8 am- 4 pm, Monday to Friday with an available team.
Tourism / Visitor Inquiries
We provide general info about Kamloops’s downtown core. You will see us at BIA events and attractions.
