“Traffic police is helping us but there are a lot of cars and it takes 20 or 25 more minutes to get tot hospital than before,” he said.
The emergency ambulance service was established by Myanmar Medical Association and Ayeyawady Foundation in September 2012. The EAS has now 6 emergency vehicles and providing services to the public.
