Emergency Response – Breathing Difficulties
We received an emergency activation from a member some time back requesting urgent emergency assistance. One of her staff members was having difficulty breathing and needed an ambulance. I gathered the necessary information and dispatched Netcare 911.
Netcare arrived on scene swiftly and paramedics stabilised the patient, after which she was transported to a nearby hospital for further medical treatment. We wish her a speedy recovery and thank our member for having the presence of mind to call for help.
