 India's  First  Emergency  Medical Services  Launched
In an endeavor to provide door to door medical emergency services, Gurgaon based Rapid Rescue Services has launched an emergency medical rescue service across New Delhi and Gurgaon.

The emergency service will be run by qualified MBBS trained by Medical team from US to provide the customers a door to door service in the event of a medical emergency.

All the doctors and paramedics will be carrying emergency medical equipment and administrative drugs, who will come on a special designed motorbike to avoid the traffic congestion. This is the first company to launch an emergency medical service in case of emergency and will be providing the services anytime, anywhere in New Delhi and Gurgaon region.

The launch of the service means that from now on in case of emergency, the residents of New Delhi and Gurgaon can be attended maximum within 30 minutes to provide the customer the fastest, most effective and reliable medical service.

To help the team reach the patient faster, the company has also installed GPS system in place. This will help the team to find out the exact location of the patient. The service will be available to all customers signed to a plan, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year in the Delhi and Gurgaon vicinity.

"We intend to provide the most effective and reliable emergency rescue to our members in need of help anywhere, anytime. There is a need for the general public in pre hospitalization treatment and we aim at addressing that with the help of our international standard service," commented Bhavin Shukla, Director, Rapid Rescue Services.

The company has floated two kinds of memberships-Gold and Silver. The Gold Customers will be located using a GPS key ring. In the event of an emergency all the customer has to do is press the predefined number on their mobile phone in order to be connected to the team to take care of him.

The rescue team will reach at the location in not more than 30 minutes and will be given the necessary medical treatment then and there. Incase of life threatening emergencies, the patients will be taken to a nearest or desired hospital in an ambulance. Apart from the patients' preference, the company is also in the process of tying up with some of popular hospitals across the two cities. The annual subscription for Gold membership is Rs 15,000 per person and any additional membership will cost Rs 7500.

The other one is silver membership. The silver customers are covered within their homes and need to call the toll free number-1800 102 3005, using either their landline phone or registered mobile in the event of a medical emergency.

In this case also the rescue team will reach their home within 30 minutes, where they will be given medical treatment at the incident scene and in case of life threatening emergency can be taken to the nearest or desired hospital in an ambulance. The annual subscription fee for two people from one family is Rs 10,000 per year. An additional per person would be Rs. 2000.
