There has been much said recently about poor ambulance service.
These are a small percentage of all calls and I would like to commend them for the great service we experienced recently.
Recently, I found my wife unresponsive at around 11 p.m. and called 911.
A fire truck was on the scene while I was still on the phone. Admittedly, the fire hall is very close.
The ambulance arrived shortly afterward.
After some time they got my wife to respond and then transported her to Peace Arch Hospital where she spent three days in the trauma room.
We were naturally very relieved and thankful for the prompt attention.
Obviously, it is not good to have to wait for an extended time, but I thought a comment on the other side was in order.
One negative was related to parking at the hospital.
It seems quite a few who parked on the street were paying at the machine for the parking lot and then getting tickets from the City of White Rock.
There are signs on the street, but it would help to have a sign on the Impark machines saying “not for street parking.”
While it was not a pleasant experience, it could have been worse had the delay been longer.
Thank you all.
