This Division has the purpose of responding to urgent and out-of-hospital medical emergencies quickly and in a timely manner, reducing the time of health response to emergent and urgent situations on public roads, in areas of difficult access or access congested by traffic, using motorcycles. or vehicles with similar characteristics such as mobile first response units.

Last Thursday, the Provincial Legislature created the division of motorized ambulances within the scope of the Central Unit for Emergencies and Transfers, so that out-of-hospital medical emergencies and emergencies can be responded to quickly and in a timely manner.

The motorcycle will be equipped with first aid instruments and specially designed for the care of sick or injured people, carrying a warning siren to indicate right of way in emergency cases. It will have technology and medical equipment, medicines, products and supplies for first aid and resuscitation, and may even have an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED), and a communication and geolocation system that allows improving the efficiency of the emergency service, making it possible to know the real geographical location of the mobile unit facilitating the dispatch to the nearest ambulance emergency.
