ABOUT 150 members of the Malaysian Red Crescent (MRC) Society in Penang will be on a 24-hour standby duty during the coming Hari Raya festive period.

Six ambulance vehicles from three MRC service centres will work in two shifts in case of emergency from July 3 to July 9.

The service centres are in Permatang Tinggi in Bukit Mertajam and Jalan St Mark in Butterworth on the mainland, and in Jalan Grove in George Town on the island.

MRC Penang branch chairman Datuk B.J. Yeang said the service centres would be open from 7am to 7pm, while the volunteers would take over the duties from 7pm to 7am.

“All our members have been trained to perform emergency first aid, and capable of providing immediate life support to accident victims.

“As part of the Ops Selamat programme, we will engage communication with hospitals and ambulance service providers to receive alerts that require our assistance in areas nearest to our teams.

“In case of a road accident or emergency, the caller only needs to call 999 and theoperator will make the arrangements,” said Yeang in a ceremony before flagging off the ambulances at AMN Service Station in Jalan Permatang Pauh, Butterworth, yesterday.

In his speech, North Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Azmi Adam advised roadusers to obey traffic rules, be alert, drive safely and regularly perform safety inspection on their vehicles before making their journey.

Together with AMN Service Station owner Abdullah Mohamed Nor, Yeang and ACP Azmi later handed over Hari Raya goodie bags to motorists who stopped over at the Shell petrol station during the event.

THREE hundred members and six ambulances from the Penang branch of the Malaysian Red Crescent will be placed on 24-hour standby during the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations.

Its chairman Datuk B.J. Yeang said the six vehicles and members would be on standby along state roads starting from Thursday until Aug 22. Those on standby are trained in first aid, pre-hospital care and basic life support.

South Seberang Prai Deputy OCPD DSP Shariffudin Abdullah officiated the event.

Yeang said the ambulances and members would be stationed at its branch offices in Jalan Grove, Air Itam, Jalan St Marks in Butterworth, Taman Alma in Bukit Mertajam and Permatang Tinggi in Bukit Mertajam.

Each ambulance is equipped with the HEARL (Hospital Emergency Ambulance Radio Link) System which enables the Red Crescent to communicate with ambulances, government hospitals, St John’s Ambulance Malaysia, Civil Defence and other emergency medical services.

DSP Shariffudin advised road users to be alert and observe the rules. He said: “Please also do not drink and drive.” He also reminded road users that a maximum compound would be slapped on traffic offenders during the festive period.
