BIMC Hospital has recently installed Global Positioning System (GPS) units into their Advanced Life Support Ambulances in order to improve response times and streamline dispatch operations. BIMC Hospital is proud to be the first to use GPS in their ambulances and is happy to be part of a new era of technology in emergency services in Bali.
When an emergency call is made to an emergency hotline, time is of the essence as a life may be at risk. Knowing where the caller is telephoning from is of utmost importance. With the new GPS installed in their ambulances, BIMC aims to get to an emergency in the fastest possible time, not waste valuable time looking for a hotel, house or villa.
BIMC Hospital has loaded participating BIMC members’ addresses into the GPS unit’s database along with a photo of the front of the house/villa as an identification icon. There are currently over 200 members participating in the program. In addition, the GPS is also loaded with coordinates of hotels, restaurants and other tourist attractions spots which may be useful in an emergency.
It’s good to know that GPS can not only help us save time in our daily lives, but can also help save lives … daily.
