Dimapur, June 22 (EMN): The Dimapur District Autorickshaw Drivers’ Union (DDADU) on Thursday launched its own ambulance service – hailed by many as the union’s ultimate achievement – here at Dimapur on Thursday.
According to DDADU officials, the ambulance facility was a result of the rising number of autorickshaw drivers in Dimapur falling victims to accidents. By introducing the ambulance facility, the DDADU hoped that the fatalities would be reduced.
It was informed that the newly launched ambulance would be available to registered autorickshaw drivers, and their immediate family members, at a very nominal cost. The DDADU has constituted a committee to filter all applicants, it was informed.
Also, the DDADU has made available the ambulance “whenever it is free” to the general public of Dimapur. Service charge, for members of the public, would be reduced to a “very nominal rate”, it was informed.
Parliamentary secretary for Economics and Statistics, Tovihoto Ayemi was the chief guest at the function to launch the ambulance. He said that the initiative was one of DDADU’s “excellent projects”.
The legislator also reminded the DDADU members of their imperative duty to ensure public safety above all else.
The recently appointed District Transport Officer of Duimapur, Lovikali Yeptho was the guest of honour at the occasion.
