Dialing 108 Saves Lives

Set up in 2008, Goan emergency health care services have helped save numerous lives. Sulochana, our Community Correspondent in Siolim, Goa has been impressed by the work of the emergency health care service – for which you have to dial 108 - on numerous occasions. She decided to make a video to publicise their work and make the public more aware of this life-saving service. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and has 22 ambulances, that take in patients from all over Goa. It undertakes an average of 120 interventions per day. A specially trained staff, comprising of communication officers, dispatch officer, pilots, and para-medical and medical workers make sure the intervention goes smoothly and the patient receives the required health care. “I know how precious this service is. It has saved 7000 lives so far, and will continue saving numerous ones. So I hope that my video will inspire officials from other state to implement a similar emergency health care service, to save the lives of their citizens,” said Sulochana.
