Steps to save road victims

Ranchi traffic police on Wednesday urged Federation of Jharkhand Chamber of Commerce and Industries (FJCCI) to take the lead in its ambitious “golden hour” project to save lives of accident victims.

Considering that a victim has maximum chances of survival if he or she gets proper medical aid within the first hour of the occurrence of the mishap, the traffic police on Wednesday proposed to the FJCCI members at a meeting at Chamber Bhavan that the life saving attempt can be initiated by paramedical staff of nursing homes and hospitals under them.

Traffic SP Rajeev Ranjan said, “FJCCI members under corporate social responsibility activity must instruct the nursing homes to properly train their paramedical staff who bring the victims from accident spots to provide them the necessary treatment within the ambulance itself.”

According to plans, the police control room would act as a call centre and have phone numbers of all hospitals. In case of an accident, anyone can inform police by dialling 100. The cops will identify the nearest hospital and instruct them to rush an ambulance to the spot.

The FJCCI members agreed to be a part of this noble project.

A member Anant Sinha said 24 nursing homes were ready to start the training from December 20.
