Gurgaon police have procured a Special Emergency Service Vehicle (SESV) fitted with latest machinery and gadgets to help provide timely aid to accident victims.

The SESV,procured at a cost of Rs 18 lakh,will be unveiled during the Republic Day celebrations in Gurgaon.

A spokesperson on Tuesday said the SESV had all necessary equipment and was also fitted with a 5 KVA generator to make the vehicle a self-sufficient unit.

The special vehicle has a jack operated on air pressure,which can be lifted to a height of 30 metres. The air pressure jack has a zoom camera with lights fitted on it. The high zoom camera is powerful enough to capture images up to a distance of 1,000 metres,officials said.

“This would be helpful in recognising suspicious elements,especially in a crowded place. The operator sitting inside the vehicle can record the visuals through a zoom recording system installed in it,” the official added.

The vehicle is also fitted with three types of cutters for cutting through trees,walls and iron.

Officials said the first type of cutter can be used to clear fallen trees off roads,while the second type can be used for rescuing those trapped inside a collapsed building. The third cutter will be helpful in rescuing the victims of road accident by cutting through the body of vehicles,the official said.

The vehicle is also equipped with a 100-watt public address system,which can be used to make announcements on the spot. The operators deputed on this vehicle have been provided helmets and jackets in bright colours so that they can be spotted easily even during the night,he said.
