With a view to ensure effective first-aid treatment to injured being rushed to hospitals, the police control room (PCR) vans will soon be equipped with new and upgraded first-aid kits.
Each kit costing around Rs 5, 000 will consist of around 20 supplies in comparison to the basic 5-6 supplies present in the earlier kits.
Apart from the basic supplies of cotton, gauze bandages, antiseptic solutions and ointments, the new kits will also consist of specialised bandages to treat different kinds of wounds, sterile pads, splints, gloves, disposable face masks, soaps and hand sanitizers to ensure proper first-aid is given and risk of infection is minimised.
"When any injured person is rushed to a nearby hospital, the time spent in travel is very critical and hence proper first-aid treatment needs to be ensured to significantly reduce risks of mortality. Keeping this in mind, we are going to provide all the 62 PCR vans in the city with upgraded first-aid kits which will consist of both basic and specialised medical supplies," said Roshan Lal, Deputy Superintendent of UT Police, Communication.
He further said, while 200 police personnel had already been given training in providing first-aid to injured people, last month, at INSCOL Hospital, Sector 34, another batch of around 150 police personnel will soon be trained at the same place.
