FIVE Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) ambulances and 150 members are on 24-hour standby in Penang until Thursday to assist in emergencies.

MRCS Penang branch chairman Datuk B.J. Yeang said each ambulance is equipped with the Hospital Emergency Ambulance Radio Link for communication with other ambulances, government hospitals, St John Ambulance Malaysia, Civil Defence Department and other emergency medical services.

“Working on shifts, four MRCS members are stationed on the island, north Seberang Prai, central Seberang Prai and south Seberang Prai.

“Our members are well-trained in first aid, pre-hospital care and basic life support,” she added.

“They will give immediate help to casualties involved in road accidents,” she said at the launching of the 24-hour ambulance service recently.

“We advise the public to call 999 in emergencies.

“All calls will go to the nearest hospital, and the hospital will then assign the case to the nearest available ambulance,” she said.

State deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk A. Thaiveegan, who was also present, said the likelihood of accidents increased during festive seasons and police were taking proactive measures such as Ops Selamat, which would end on Feb 15.

He also reminded the public who were going away for their celebrations or holidays to ensure that their homes were properly secured.

“They could also inform the nearest police station and we will increase the frequency of police patrolling in their area,” he added.

Also present were state MRCS branch director Chow Thian Pow, treasurer Chris Tan, Combase Board chairman Ken Lee, MRCS Penang Island branch chief Nancy Cheah and state Road Safety Department officer Sarimah Jaafar.
