Hyderabad, Telangana : Cyberabad Police and SCSC’s Covid Control Room launched the services of 12 ambulances so that ambulances shortage is minimised.
Further pressing of 12 ambulances service will reduce pressure on the existing capacity of the ambulances in the city.
Though there are hundreds of ambulances available in the city, patients who need to be transported to the hospitals are in more numbers. So, there is a need to have more ambulances on the road.
Mr VC Sajjanar, Cyberabad Police Commissioner and Mr Krishna Yedula, General Secretary of SCSC flagged off all the 12 ambulances at a brief function held at the Cyberabad Police Commissionerate office at Gachibowli.
Speaking on the occasion immediately after flagging of VC Sajjanar warned Ambulance operators who are fleecing patients and demanding abnormal charges. He urged people to complain about such operators. Ambulance operators indulging in such inhuman activities will be booked under the appropriate acts and will be punished, he said and added it is not the time to cheat people. People are suffering. Ambulance operators shouldn’t make their customers/public suffer further.
These 12ambulances launched today will offer free service and are available 24×7 immediately for the people in the entire city. People are urged to utilise these services.
The public can avail of these services both for Covid and non-COVID related trips to the hospital. It will cater for Covid and other emergencies as well as for patients such as pregnant women transportation to the hospital, cardiac care, Diabetic patients who need dialysis, cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy etc.
Ambulance’s support is more required now than ever before. They can provide first aid, emergency care, various medicines and life support, and carry patients to the hospital.
