COVID-19: FRSC releases five ambulances to Presidential Taskforce



THE Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has released five basic life support ambulances together with teams of medical personnel of the Corps and 30 active Close User Group lines to the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

  This was contained in a statement by the corps spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem.

According to her, this is to help assist the evacuation of coronavirus victims from the point of identification to isolation centres.

  “FRSC has always been at the forefront of national commitment and at this moment of global emergency, the PTF seeks to further the existing collaboration with the Corps in the area of emergency response services in a bid to enhance established collective efforts geared towards combating the dreaded virus.

The need to activate the ambulance service system has become grossly consequential at this time that records have shown a consistent rise in the number of infected persons in the country which is already less than two dozens away from a thousand cases,” the statement read in parts.

She added that irrespective of the fact that other agencies have also donated a number of ambulances for the said programme, the need for more cannot be overemphasised.

  “They are to work for 2 weeks, after which they will be subjected to 2weeks isolation by the PTF in designated centres and certified negative before they can be allowed to reunite with their families and report back to duty,” the statement continued.
