The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Air Ambulance


There was a horrible accident in our town recently. Someone fell and seriously damaged their head. A local doctor was doing heart resuscitation on the person when I last saw. And the crowd were amazingly co-operative, by standing back, giving him lots of space.

It was life saving stuff.

The air ambulance arrived.  ETA was nine minutes. It took nine minutes. And later, an ambulance – and police cars. But once airborne, the air ambulance has great advantages over an ambulance. In this mountainous place it is our wondrous friend.

Mr Furlong and I are great supporters of the air ambulance. It is not supported by the government.

And it should be.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. Such a pity that The Lifeboats aren’t similarly supported.
