Woman sounds address alert

-A A +A
By Jeff M. Hardison

Eve Jensen of Cedar Key said she thinks Levy County Emergency Medical Service personnel should practice reading maps more.

Jensen's husband K.C. Brown needed ambulance transport to Malcom Randall, the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Gainesville. That was in July, and now in February she is still incensed.

Levy County EMS, Jensen said, aroused her extreme anger and indignation by not listening to her when she gave directions to reach her home at 1181 Gulf Blvd.

She told the 9-1-1 dispatcher that the house was on the Southeast corner of Whiddon Avenue and Gulf Boulevard. When the ambulance came, it turned the wrong way at the intersection, she said, and she ran after it with a flashlight to direct them to her house.

After her husband was put in the ambulance, she followed it to the VA. It never went faster than 65 mph and emergency lights and siren were not used, she said. Jensen felt like the EMS crew treated her husband as if he had already passed away, she said.

Jensen's message for readers is to mark their homes well to help assure emergency service will arrive more quickly.
