According to Valerie Gough "you have to have the ambulance when you have panic attacks because they are dangerous."
The 67-year-old suffers from a heart condition, but regardless of this the Queensland Ambulance Service says she was misusing the service, because more often than not her emergency calls weren't urgent at all.
"Sometimes they'll come down and take me blood pressure - save me going into the hospital and ... save me money on taxis and things like that," Gough said.More stories from Today Tonight
Gough was asked to stop calling emergency, was arrested by police, and hit with more than 300 charges. Her frequent calls allegedly resulted in staff taking sick and stress leave to escape her abuse.
Gough says "it's all lies" but she did call triple zero again and again and again, breaching her bail conditions. She was given jail time for two weeks, and is now on probation for two years.
In 2011 there were over 170,000 pranks calls made to emergency operators, which ranged from the annoying to the ridiculous.
Calls made statements such as "what do you need the police for? I'm sick and tired of the public being told lies."
Another said "I locked the keys inside the car. Is there any possibility of getting help for that?"
Possibly even more ridiculous was a call that said "I'm trying to find information on what time the last train leaves because I'm at a train station."
