The URAL EMS, an emergency ambulance platform, has started test-drive in Dhaka. With a slogan “Be a Champion, Be a LifeSaver”, URAL EMS is a location-based mobile app that makes hiring an on-demand ambulance easy. Using a smartphone device, a citizen can hire an ambulance during an emergency to pick up a patient and take him or her to desired hospitals. Four types of ambulances are in its service portfolio – Standard, A/C, ICU and Freezer. “With a mission to transform the health space by ensuring faster ambulance response time and standardized service, we expect to launch Ural EMS in May this year. “At present, we are teaming up with government stakeholders, doctors community, hospitals and ambulance owners”, Shahriar Farid, co-founder and CEO of Woadec Ltd, which developed URAL EMS, said in a press release on Saturday. The app is available on Google Play Store. URAL EMS will be launched in all divisions in Bangladesh by the end of this year to ensure that patients get the ambulances in fastest possible time.
