  • There is one death every 4 minutes due to a road accident in India

  • More than 50% of heart attack cases reach hospital late

  • India has the highest incidences of death due to delay in ambulance services

  • The chances of survival from a heart attack or a life threatening injury reduces from 70% to 7% in just 4 minutes delay

  • The goal of an ambulance is to reach any place within 15-20 minutes after the distress call and transport the patient to a health facility within 20 minutes thereafter. But the average time for an ambulance to reach hospital is going up each year due to traffic

  • Give way to ambulance, an initiative by students of Oakridge, aims to educate people that saving time is saving life.

Why they took the pledge and why you should too
