Call 108...for Arogya Kavacha!

The Emergency Response Service, titled Arogya Kavacha-108, was launched in the city on 2nd Nov 08 by former President of India A.P.J. Abdul Kalam on the occasion of Kannada Rajyotsava Day. The fleet of 66 ambulances commenced their operation under the project in Bangalore.
Now, in case of an emergency, like ill health, accidents or fire, one has to just dial 108. A fully equipped state-of-the-art ambulance will arrive within 20 minutes anywhere in the city. The medical staff in the ambulance will not only transport the affected person to hospital, but will also provide pre-hospitalizations treatment free of cost. A great initiative indeed!!
