The audience was then presented with the First Responder programme, that deals with first aid kits and its awareness.
The project will help supply specialist ambulance services to a larger population in Maharashtra. Presently, MEMS project has a total 937 ambulances, including 233 Advanced Life Support (ALS) and 704 Basic Life Support Ambulances (BLS) with over 5,000 EMS doctors and is operated by BVG India Ltd and UK Specialist Ambulance Service (UKSAS).
