Rescue services soon an app away
PESHAWAR: In a bid to improve access to rescue services and their response times, the government in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) has signed an agreement with one of the largest ride-hailing mobile application services in the country.
According to the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the K-P authorities and Careem, the ride-hailing service, at the Chief Minister’s Secretariat in Peshawar on Wednesday, the latter will include the Peshawar Rescue 1122 service on its online application.
The move aims to optimise the vehicle dispatching process and enable the public to request emergency services such as ambulance and the fire brigade through a separate “Emergency Services Customer Car Type (CCT)” tab in the regular app.
