At the inception of devolution, all the 47 counties acquired ambulances to save lives in life-threatening situations.
The puzzle is, the public has no clue of how to call for one in case an accident occurs or a patient’s life is in danger.
In case of accidents, it’s ambulance crew who must be first on the scene but not the police.
So, can all counties submit their ambulance contacts to the public via media and SMS in mobile phones?
Also, this service must be 24/7; otherwise, for it to be stationed at county offices defeats the purpose for which it was created.
They crews should be on standby at several centres like the security alarm back-up crews do.
