MOH Launches New Programs to Serve Pilgrims
10 October 2013
As part of the new and developed programs adopted by the Ministry of Health (MOH) to improve its services and ensure the safety of the pilgrims and health facilities, the MOH has introduced during the pilgrimage season of this year the Fire Extinguishing and Rapid Intervention Vehicles and Equipments program, given that the vehicles took their positions within the holy sites. It is worth mentioning that this step comes within the procedures taken by the Ministry to achieve security and safety for health facilities, personnel and visiting pilgrims.
It is noteworthy that safety vehicles were equipped to serve in fire extinguishing and rapid intervention; as they were provided with a number of fire extinguishers with different sizes and varieties in order to face all kinds of fires. They were also provided with the equipments of forcible entry, such as the iron scissors, the electrical wire shears, an iron hammer, a rubber hammer, an equipment to take off the doors, a fire blanket, a first aid kit, a torch, a drum for breathing, and other safety equipments.
It should be noted that such vehicles have started working two weeks after the launch of the program at MOH headquarters within the framework of the Fire Extinguishing and Safety Program implemented by MOH's Safety and Security General Department.
