Reviewing the performance of the scheme ‘Integration of Ambulances with Police Network for ensuring Golden Hour Treatment for Accident Victims’ launched on July 12, City Police Commissioner, K.C.

The review meeting was presided over by Mr.Mahali, Deputy Commissioners of Police, S. Rajendran (Law and Order), K. Thondiraj (Crime and Traffic), Chairman of KG Hospitals, G. Bhakthavatchalam and was attended by traffic police personnel and heads of hospitals in the city.Mr.Mahali released the Golden Hour Trauma Care directory and Dr.Bhakthavatchalam received the first copy of the same. Quoting statistics from the Golden Hour Register maintained at the control room, Mr.Mahali said that in the last 20 days, the control room had received 28 calls wherein 15 ambulances rescued the victims and nine were removed in private vehicles.

Mr. Mahali said that in order to ensure instant reaction to road accident emergency calls, ambulances could be positioned midway on arterial roads.

At present, the average MTR was 12 minutes and had to be brought down further. Of the 38 injured in road accidents since July 12 to July 31, 35 lives were saved. There were 193 deaths due to accidents during the year 2008 from January 1 to July 31. In January there were 28 accidents, 23 in February, 24 in March, 40 in April, 24 in May and 33 in June.
