With the help of technology, ambulance will get rid of traffic
The government prepared the complete draft
LucknowTraffic is a big problem in Uttar Pradesh. People have to face problems due to traffic in different places of the state including the capital Lucknow. Due to which many unfortunate situations have also come to the fore in the past. Ambulances also get stuck in traffic jams due to non-clearance of traffic, due to which patients have to face problems. Sometimes patients get delayed in reaching the hospital due to non-clearance of traffic and the patient dies on the way. Keeping this problem in mind, the government is preparing to solve it properly.
The state government is making a new strategy to take the patients of the state to the hospital in less time. Under this, a green corridor will be created automatically as soon as the ambulance reaches around the intersection. This will be possible with the coordination of GPS and traffic control system installed in the ambulance. Its draft has been prepared and soon preparations are being made to implement it in major cities of the state including Gorakhpur, Lucknow, Kanpur.
This strategy was made
Continuous efforts are being made by the government to ensure that the patients in the state do not face any kind of problems and can reach the hospital at the right time. At present, the response time of 108 ambulance service in the state is 15 minutes, while the response time of 102 ambulance service is 20 minutes in urban areas and 30 minutes in rural areas. But due to jams at various intersections, it takes more than double the time for an ambulance to reach. jam in urban areas
Because sometimes an ambulance can reach within an hour. Whereas instructions have been given by the government to further reduce the already fixed response time.
This is the reason why a strategy has also been made to reduce the response time. In this, the timing of the Green Corridor was presented as an example. With the help of the Green Corridor, the time taken from the spot to the hospital is reduced by less than half. In such a situation, a strategy has also been made to connect the traffic signal with the ambulance. In the first phase, this system will be implemented in Gorakhpur, Lucknow, Varanasi, Kanpur, Agra, Prayagraj, Bareilly, Meerut, Moradabad, Mathura, Meerut, Jhansi. After this other cities will also be included in it.
will work like this
It is worth noting that the traffic police try to give way when the ambulance arrives at the intersections. The ambulance is passed by stopping the traffic on the other side. But due to the high crowd, sometimes long lines are formed at the intersections. In such a situation, the ambulance is not visible from afar and due to being far away, it takes more time. The new system will work completely under Artificial Intelligence. In this, the traffic control system will already connect the GPS installed in the ambulance itself.
This system will make a green corridor by taking suo motu cognizance. In such a situation, as soon as the ambulance reaches the intersection, the signal of the respective direction will turn green. How long it will take to reach the next intersection, it will also be visible to the traffic control system. Accordingly, the next signal will also turn green. If an ambulance arrives at an intersection from two directions, the one where the ambulance will come first will get a green signal and then the one in the other direction will get a green signal. After this, the other direction will be green again.
Government gives free ambulance service
Let us tell you that free ambulance service is provided by the state government. At present there are 108 ambulances in the state, a total of 2200 and 102 ambulances totaling 2270. 108 Ambulance service is available free of cost for accident and any kind of emergency medical treatment. Whereas for pregnant women and children up to two years, 102 ambulances are present to take them to the hospital and drop them at home.
