Rescue 1122: Motorbike Ambulance Service to Launch in 9 Cities of Punjab
Emergencies are part of routine. For quick medical care service Rescue 1122 was launched. This brought a new phase of development.
Punjab has an increasing rate of population that is the reason the traffic on the roads is increasing too. On the busy road it is really difficult to run the ambulances and this can create hindrance in the service.
Keeping the traffic situation in Punjab in mind Chief Minister of Punjab Shahbaz Sharif has taken a step to resolve this issue. He has guided the Rescue 1122 staff to introduce motorbike medical services during any sort of emergency in the areas with a large traffic.
According to Dr. Rizwan Naseer who is the Director General of Punjab Emergency service, they have planned to hire about 800 paramedical staff to start motorbike ambulance service
Initially Motorbike Ambulance Service will be provided to nine district headquarters of Punjab that are Lahore, Sargodha, Rawalpindi, Multan, Bahawalpur, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Dera Ghazi Khan and Sahiwal.
When there is a heavy traffic on small roads or congested areas it is difficult for the large ambulance to rush towards the emergency point. Motorcycle ambulance will give first aid to the injured people much quickly and would be able to run easily on the road so it can provide treatment on time.
