One in five triple zero calls are needless and paramedics are sick of it

MML

Triple Zero is being abused to the stage where paramedics are sick of it.

In one case a man called for an ambulance because he hadn’t passed wind for 24 hours, another just wanted a a ride home from a party.

Its estimated one in five calls are needless, preventing paramedics from attending REAL emergencies.
