Dear All,

This is a forwarded mail that i have received from one of my friend.

I am sharing my personal experience with “*108*” (EMRI) on their Quick

When I travel from Pondicherry to Coimbatore last Sunday (02-08-09)
night by Bus, the bus met an accident with lorry in National Highway
nearby “Atthur” Landmark: “Paaventhar college of Arts and Science”.

Two of my co-passenger got injured.

One is lady and second is her baby of 15months old.

The lady had an injury in her hand and the baby was motionless. The
First-Aid kit is also missing in the bus.

The accident happened at *mid-night 00:57am*.

On seeing the condition of the baby and mother, I immediately called 108
at *00:59am*. Explained the state of injured persons and location of the
place, Village, District & Taluk (assisted by a local person). It took
around 3minutes.
At 01:03am* (within a minute) I got a call from 108 with a conference to
the district level center explained the exact location and condition of
the persons injured. It took around 3minutes.
At 01:08am* again I got a call from the Ambulance saying that they are
on the way to accident spot.

To be surprise, the Ambulance reached the spot *at 01:17am* and started
the treatment. The baby was brought to the active state (may be due to
timely attempt by 108-EMRI) and medicines given for injured lady. At the
end of their treatment both of them came to normal.

The EMRI 108 Ambulance reached the spot *within 15minutes* from the
receipt of information to them

Here I would like express one thing that except me, none of the
co-passengers were not aware of 108.

As I am aware of 108 through training given for *EMERGENCY EVACUATION DRILL *conducted in June ’09, I could help the co-passengers.

Looks like "phone a friend" is true here:

Only thing I fear is that we shouldn't get the reply, "All Lines On This Route Are Busy" !!!
