Patients in emergency situations can also call the central control room on 9891403828/9953086923 or contact the nearest DSGMC-run gurdwara for free transportation, it said.    

All the ambulances are equipped with essential protective equipment such as masks and sanitisers as per the government guidelines issued to contain the pandemic, Sirsa said.
