Ambulance Service

One of the things we take into consideration when looking for a house to move in is the location. It is preferable if the house is accessible by public transport and if a hospital or ambulance service, fire, police station, market, school and church are nearby. The properties surrounding these facilities are usually expensive so we would end up settling on a place far from the ones mentioned since it would be cheaper. Living far from these facilities can be troublesome so the least that we can do is get a hold of emergency services numbers.


Ambulance service plays a vital role in saving lives. Its primary purpose is to transport the sick or injured people from the emergency scene to the hospital. To meet the demands of different medical situations, the functions of ambulance service broadened. It can now provide 24 hour emergency assistance of home nursing and supply medical products such as beds, home oxygen, etc. Medical standby and First-aid coverage can be offered in events including private functions, corporate events, major sporting events such as triathlons, marathons etc.


The ambulance service team includes an ambulance technician and paramedic. They are well-trained in first-aid skills in order to deal with cardiac arrests, profuse bleeding, road accidents, crush and fall injuries, and much more. Paramedics determine if the casualty has to be taken to the hospital or can be treated on the emergency scene. Ambulances are equipped with pre-hospital emergency machines to give temporary medical assistance as what hospitals can offer. Ambulance service is not only available in ground but also by air. Air ambulance is used if the patient has to be transported over a long distance or has to be quickly brought to a treatment centre.


We can avoid emergency situations by being careful in our actions and by frequently having medical check-ups. However, we cannot fully control our life so accidents may still happen. In cases that immediate medical assistance are highly needed, we can rely on those who offer ambulance services.
