'108' Emergency Ambulance Services

Introduction.

Initially, Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project had partnered with selected NGOs in 15 districts to provide ambulance services. Due to various difficulties faced in running the operations, it was decided to partner with an experienced organization

Partnership with Private Sector

Subsequently, the Project signed a MoU to provide emergency services for the State, fully funded by Government of Tamil Nadu. All the ambulances procured were handed over to EMRI so that they could modify according to the specifications.

On September 15, 2008, the programme was launched in Tamil Nadu.

24x7 Service

It could be either a medical emergency, a fire emergency, or a crime being committed. The number 108 is a toll-free number and can be dialed from any phone, be it a mobile phone or a landline, at the time of an emergency, without any prefix or suffix.

Help reaches the person within 20 minutes.

Initially, the person who receives the call at Emergency Response Centre (ERC) takes down the nature of emergency and the location of the caller. Depending on the nature of the call, either an ambulance, a fire engine, or a police assistance is sent. This is done through the Emergency Response Centre.

The centralized Emergency Response Centre helps coordinate between the Despatch Officer, Emergency Response Centre Physician and the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) for getting guidance during transit. Coordination with police and fire department is also facilitated through the Emergency Response Centre.

The entire service is free for any citizen.

Since September 15, 2008, till 30th April, 2010, 108 ambulance service has provided emergency care and saved the lives of 4,11,288 persons. Of these:

  • 1, 26,942 were accident and trauma cases
  • 1,10,480 were pregnancy cases
  • 21,782 were cardiac cases
  • 15,660 were poison cases
  • 21,185 critical cases
  • 6, 930 Tribal beneficiaries

By March 2011, the number of ambulances plying in Tamil Nadu will rise to 645.

As Messi Seeks Another Trophy, Soccer Fears for a Future Without Him

Lionel Messi had said the 2022 World Cup, which his country won, was his last. Will the Copa América soccer tournament be his goodbye?

On Thursday in Atlanta, the Argentine national soccer team will kick off the 2024 edition of Copa América, South America’s biggest soccer championship, with a game against Canada. Fans around the world, but especially in Argentina, have been eagerly awaiting this day ever since their beloved squad, led by perhaps the greatest soccer player of all time, won the 2022 World Cup .

But when Lionel Messi, the Argentine captain and superstar, takes the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with his teammates as the favorites to defend their 2021 Copa América title, a simmering sadness will follow him.

Will this be the last time that Messi, who turns 37 next week and said two years ago that it was his final World Cup, wears the blue and white Argentine uniform in a major tournament? Will this be the last time one of the most famous humans on Earth, who brought joy to many during unstable times in his homeland, represents his soccer-obsessed country?

“He’s already saying goodbye, with the interviews he’s been giving, it seems like he’s preparing us for it,” said Sergio Colque, 40, an electrician, as he waited to play in a recreational soccer match last weekend in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina.

A man wearing a Levi’s T-shirt stands with his arm crossed on a playing field.

Jonathan Icikson, 27, an ambulance dispatcher , was with friends outside a bar last week watching Argentina play against Guatemala in its final tuneup before Copa América. “The sadness, obviously, can’t be measured in words,” he said, “but not all endings are happy. All good things come to an end at some point.”
