To ensure timely health assistance in traffic-congested areas and small lanes, the Delhi government on Thursday launched bike ambulance services.

The bikes, to be known as the First Responder Vehicles, will have a portable oxygen cylinder, first aid kit and dressing materials, air-splints, GPS and communication device, among others.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched the fleet of 16 bikes at Delhi Secretariat along with Health Minister Satyendar Jain.

This will reduce the ambulance response time in congested areas and J.J. clusters in East Delhi (East, North East and Shahdara).

“Today we have taken a big step for the people of Delhi. Till now only big vehicles were available for ambulance services, now these bike ambulances will be able to reach narrow bylanes to provide immediate medical care for people residing there,” Kejriwal said.

“The van ambulances were not able to reach in small lanes. Sixteen bike ambulances have been launched. The number will go up in the coming future. This will also be easy in high traffic zones,” he added.

The project that cost Rs 40 lakh was approved by the Cabinet last year.

“Against the sanctioned funds of Rs 40 lakh, the project was completed at Rs 23 lakh only,” the government said.

Sushmita, who plays the titular role in the series, garnered mostly positive response for her performance. She even won the Best Actress-Web Series award at Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2021, recently.

The actor shared her acceptance speech video on her Instagram profile. “Of the many things I have learnt over the years as an actor and a person is that everything we do in our lifes needs a teamwork. This moment, this honour is also a result of teamwork,” the actor said in the video.
