It takes just one phone call to give a person’s life a waiting chance. Calling an ambulance can and performing first aid if needed can mean the difference between life or death to the person or persons involved in accidents. In the cities, there is a higher possibility of ambulance services that can be found in areas of need. But is it the same in rural areas?
In general, for a long time, the accessibility to ambulances was a big question. Where there were roads, there were no ambulances. Where there were ambulances there were no ambulances and then when they had roads and ambulances, there were no hospitals – meaning that a large number of accidents would eventually turn out to be causalities since the ambulances could not reach the place or the hospital in time.
This golden hour, that most important and crucial time after an accident within which a patient needs to be given treatment so that there is minimal chances of further complications and lives can be saved. Now with better connectivity and the landscape of roads changing in both the rural and the city areas, the situation at rural villages is improving in leaps and bounds. The same momentum is being carried in the sphere of emergency medical transportation with the hospitals and nursing homes cropping up in various villages and the outskirts of the city.
