Hit and Run victim saved by Dial '108' Kerala

Sometime back '108' Ambulance, Kerala team received a call from the person who himself got injured in the hit and run road accident. Since the victim was the only one at the accident spot with bad phone connectivity (in remote area) it was difficult to track the location.
Our CDC immediately sent the Ambulance and asked the person not to disconnect the call in between. Our Ambulance reached the location in 15 minutes, but since the victim was in unconscious state - our Ambulance crew increased the sound of the siren which helped in locating the victim. Our prompt service saved the victim's life as he was transferred to the nearby hospital just in time.
Remembering the number “108” saved his life- so all Keralites save this number now !

Creating Awareness about health life is a big challenge, especially in the country like ours where a large part of population are illiterate and without any access to mass media. And the crux of the problem is that this population is more in need of awareness.

With this aim of making Mumbai more healthy and fit, 12 days rigorous FREE Health Check Up Camp is organized to reach masses at various touch points like temples, Parks, housing societies. This camp has been well received and appreciated by people who underwent the check up. Through this camp over 1000 people underwent check up.
