GORGE IS HEALTHY AND FIT AND RUNS HIS OWN SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS.
WHILST RELAXING ON THE COUCH AT HOME HE HAD AN EPISODE OF ATRIAL FIBRILLATION.
I let my ambulance cover lapse for a few months because I thought I would save the $78 a family membership costs. I changed my mind and renewed my membership, more thinking of the kids and their activities…luckily.
One evening a few weeks after re-joining AV I was watching TV on the couch and suddenly felt so unwell that I had to call an emergency ambulance. I had atrial fibrilliation and my heart was shocked back into rhythm! I’d never even heard of it and was really surprised that it was me that needed the ambulance service…I’d never been unwell before. The paramedics were fantastic, so calm, and I can’t believe I put off spending the measly renewal fee.
It would have cost me $3,200 for a short ride to hospital if I wasn’t a member.
