With the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) finishing work in July Bengaluru are going to get 8 helipad services to improve the medical services in eight zones of the city itself. It is going to be the first city in India with air ambulance facilities.
” The construction of helipads in every BBMP zone to cater for air ambulances and for VIP movement could be finished in just four months”, said Mayor Sampath Raj. This will help the severely injured people to reach hospital immediately.
With growing accidents in our country, it is really a very necessary and important step. BBMP announced the construction of these helipad zones during the civic budget on 28th of February. The civic body coming forward and being initiative will be the first-of-its-kind wherein an urban local body will own its own helipads.
The zones for the construction of helipads are identified. When the project starts, the project customers will be charged a nominal amount. However, it’s a big step and much appreciated.
With this inspirational achievement, other cities of our country too will come forward to take similar actions in future.
