Innovation Description

Develop first aiders and response teams alongside highways, so that effective and efficient first aid and search and rescue/evacuation services can be provided to accident victims immediately after the incident.
How does your innovation work?
In the past decade, 54,010 accidents, major and minor, have been officially registered in the country, resulting 9,170 fatalities, 19,548 serious injuries, and 44,615 minor injuries. Demise of a family member causes direct financial crisis to his or her dependents. The cost being involved in treatment of injured has been enormous. Proper First Aid management at the site of accident can prevent further injury and death of severely injured.
