On-site Ambulances: Necessity and Benefits

When you think about ambulances, you often imagine them being driven from one place to another. But have you ever noticed ambulances on standby at events like fests and concerts? 
Why are such standby ambulances becoming increasingly important?
Let’s find out!  
On November 5, 2021, American rapper Travis Scott’s performance at the Astroworld Festival in Houston, Texas, turned into a “mass tragedy,” with eight people killed and hundreds injured due to an uncontrollable crowd rush. Over 300 victims were treated at a nearby field hospital. 
The availability of ambulances at the event prevented the situation from becoming worse. 
Big events like these always pose a risk of the situation getting out of hand. And if that does happen, ambulances play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and well-being of individuals at such events.

Importance of Ambulances at Big Events:-

There are many benefits of having an ambulance standby at large events.
Some of them are:
  • Medical Aid:

It is important to implement an emergency plan especially while dealing with large gatherings. An on-site ambulance serves the need of the hour. A fully equipped on-site ambulance can also act as a Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) to help with any on-spot medical emergency.
  • Immediate Help:

Time is delicate during a medical emergency. Delay in getting help can have disastrous consequences for the patient.   The response time of emergency services from other areas of the city/town may be affected when large events occupy roads, bridges, and walkways.   As a result, having an ambulance on-site reduces the response time in the event of an accident.
  • Accessibility:

Poor accessibility to hospitals in remote areas is a concerning issue. It is very important to have a standby ambulance present at events that take palace in such areas. It saves time as well as the potential safety risk that the patient might face in case of an emergency. 
  • A Sign Of Reassurance:

People always prioritise their safety. Large events create an air of safety concerns. Each year in India, people are killed in stampedes caused by panic.
The Ratangarh temple stampede in 2013 killed 115 people, and the Sabarimala stampede in 2012 killed about 100. Such catastrophes are too regular in this country.
Ambulances (and other emergency services) by being present onsite reassures people of their safety.
