Now Call Bike Ambulance For Medical Emergency in Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal Launches Pilot Project
Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal said that the number of bike ambulances in Delhi would be increased in the coming days.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched bike-ambulance services for East Delhi on a pilot basis, saying it would provide quick pre-hospital response in congested areas. Talking to reporters after flagging off 16 bike ambulances outside the Delhi Secretariat here, Kejriwal said it was a big step taken by the Aam Aadmi Party government for the people. The AAP chief said the number of bike ambulances would be increased in the coming days.
The chief minister said four-wheeler ambulances had to face difficulty in entering narrow lanes. "If there's a medical emergency in narrow bylanes, bike ambulance can go there and immediately provide its service to patients."
"This is a big step in the health sector. Everybody knows that the Delhi government is doing good works in education and health sectors," Kejriwal said, adding that it would also be good for traffic point of view.
The bike ambulance service is using Hero Achiever commuter motorcycles with minor modifications like additional windscreen, siren with light, and panniers for medical devices and first aid.
Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government had also recently launched the 'Zero Fatality Corridor' to examine the cause for accidents and crashes on the stretch between Burari Chowk and Bhalswa chowk, located on the outer ring road. The initiative is to be run in partnership with SaveLIFE Foundation, a leading road safety non-profit organization.
