Police Training Course in Basic Life Support at AIMS

The State Government, along with the Road Safety Authority, is planning to introduce 150-200 fullyequipped ambulances for trauma care during accidents and emergencies, Director-General of Police Jacob Punnoose said.  After inaugurating a police training course in Basic Life Support at the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences here, he said the Rs 10-crore project would include training of 800 paramedical staff to support the ambulance facility. All major hospitals in the state should connect with this system by adding their ambulances on call so that an ambulance will be available every 3-4 minutes in a 5-km distance. There has only been a 30 per cent reduction in the number of road accidents - from 3,700 to 2,600 - and such a service will help link the hospitals with the police control room that could be of great service to society, he said.
