To prevent any unforeseen circumstances, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said it has joined other stakeholders by deploying a rescue helicopter, three Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) ambulances and three Rapid Intervention Vehicles to support emergency situations in Kaduna State, following the closure of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
NEMA disclosed that the helicopter is to be used for medical patrol while the three MICU ambulances with the Rapid Intervention Vehicles are stationed along Jere and Katari Towns, Kaduna-Abuja road and Kaduna International Airport.
This was contained in a statement by the agency’s Head of Media and Public relations, Sani Datti and made available to the press weekend in Abuja.
According to the release, “the MICU ambulances are used to administer first aid treatment and stabilisation for trauma victims on their way to the hospital as it serves as a mobile hospital with the capacity to carry one critical and one less critical victim. The Rapid Intervention Vehicles are used for Search and Rescue, fight fire rapidly and extrication of victims trapped in accident vehicles or collapsed structures.”
It stated further that NEMA can be reached through the North-west Zonal office at No 15 Wurno Road Unguwan Sarki, Kaduna or through its emergency call number 0800CALLNEMA (080022556362) or the National Emergency Number 112. All calls are Toll free.
