'Need to build integrated response network when no ambulance is available in time of emergency'

A Consultative meeting held in Churachandpur pointed out the need for training to take care of the victims in case of any accident or any kind of unwanted incident.


A consultative meeting on emergency response network and launching of 4RSD project for Assam and Manipur was held on Saturday, organised by READS-a Kristi initiative, supported by Humedica and implemented by reformed Presbyterian Church.

The project was launched by Rural Education and Development Society consultant, Penial Malakar in the presence of additional SP, Hasby Haokip and CVO members from Kuki and Hmar community.

On the occasion, Malakar spoke on the need for building up an integrated emergency response network and said that every person is not safe from any social disaster even among their own community. There is a need for training to take care of the victims in case of any accident or any kind of unwanted incident.

The additional SP said that in the time of emergency, people called for help and they did their duty in collaboration with the medical department, and had taken the situation in control. There are instances of people accusing the police for any negligence. However, the police personnel are active round the clock and the police patrol vehicle is often used to take the injured victim to the hospital as no ambulance is available in the time of emergency.

The additional SP also asked the people to contact the police at any time and make suggestions so that shortcoming may be addressed instead of going to social media for making their grievances to the public.
