CALAMBA CITY, Laguna, Aug 9 (PIA) Department of Health (DOH) - CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) Regional Director Eduardo C. Janairo led the distribution of nine more land ambulances to hospitals and rural health units in the region during the turn-over ceremony held at the regional office in Project 4, Quezon City in August 6, 2020

"Magagamit natin ang mga ambulansyang ito hindi lang sa pagresponde sa COVID-19 kundi pati na rin sa ginagawa natin ngayong Polio vaccination lalo na sa mga lugar ng Laguna at Cavite upang mapabilis ang paghatid ng bakuna sa mga bata na nakatira sa malalayong lugar ng probinsya," Director Janairo emphasized.

"Mas mapapalakas at mapapabilis natin ang pagbibigay ng serbisyong medikal at pangkalusugan sa tulong ng mga ambulansyang ito na magsisilbing transportasyon at kaagapay ng ating mga health workers upang makapagbigay ng agarang lunas sa mga may sakit at makapagligtas ng buhay," he added.

There are now 39 ambulances given to various health facilities in the region since May 2020. A total of 98 land ambulances will be delivered to identified heath facilities before the end of this year.

Each is supplied with medical equipment necessary for emergency medical personnel to respond to medical emergency including automatic external defibrillator, nebulizer, portable suction machine, examining light, aneroid sphygmomanometer, folding stretcher, scoop stretcher, heavy duty stethoscope, and oxygen cylinder.
