Boat-Ambulance

In order to improve response efficiency, as also reducing the scene to hospital time, boat ambulances are operated in areas that are better accessible by waterways than roadways. Boat ambulances operate as integral part of 108 Emergency Response Service. This service has 5 boat ambulances in Assam and 1 in Uttarakhand to respond to Medical Emergencies and referral transport serving to remote villages accessible through waterways.
