The Ambulance Company covers ARM “Run for the future” event.

The Ambulance Company had the privilege of being on standby at the ARM “Run for the future” event. The ARM “Run for the Future” is a run/walk event aimed at creating awareness amongst our clients and the general public on the importance of exercise and living healthy.  The event was one of those that showcased the invaluable role of medical support and having an ambulance on standby.

As the participants engaged in the running event, A man found himself in a medical emergency. Some officers who saw him lying on the grounfd brought him back to the event venue and to our ambulance. His breaths were shallow and rapid and his body was trembling. Moments like that remind us why every second counts and action can mean the difference between life and death.

Although The Ambulance Company’s paramedics sprang into action, It took hours to stabilize the patient but it was done and the patient was taken to the hospital for further evaluation. Occurrences like this is an opportunity for us to reiterate the importance of having an ambulance on standby.
