Kapurthala, August 4
The district administration has fixed the rates for private ambulances. The new fixed ambulance charges will be Rs 800 for upto a distance of 15 km and additional Rs 10 per km. This was announced by DC Deepti Uppal after chairing a meeting with officials and owners of ambulances here on Tuesday.
Kapurthala Civil Surgeon Jasmeet Bawa said, “It is important that the ambulances will have to be equipped with necessary safety measures such as partition between the front half where the driver sits and the rear half, where the patient is seated or laid down. The driver will be compulsorily wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) kits.
The driver will ensure enough stock of fresh PPE kits, N-95 face masks and gloves in the ambulance, and the patient and each of his or her attendant(s) must be provided with a PPE kit, N-95 face mask and a pair of gloves before getting into the ambulance. While the rate of a pair of gloves plus one N-95 face mask will be Rs 50, the PPE kits too will be provided at the fixed rate”.
