Latehar (Jharkhand) (India), Nov 2 (ANI): The Jharkhand sector of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has launched an ingeniously designed bike ambulance in order to provide health facilities to people in the interior areas of Latehar district.
The bike ambulance was launched at the Matlong Campo of 133 Battalion of the CRPF on Thursday.
The vehicle consists of a foldable canopy with a backrest, hand rest and seat extension for patients. It also has wheel guards on both sides, along with a footrest with grip.
A pair of seats has also been integrated into the ambulance to keep the patients steady and comfortable, along with the provision of a first aid box, a beacon light and a hooter.
The introduction of the new service is crucial in the area as it is a hotbed of Naxal activity. It has been reported, time and again, that the presence of Naxals in the region has hampered developmental activities and construction of adequate infrastructure.
The launch of the bike ambulance, therefore, is believed to improve medical facilities for locals in the region. (ANI)
