The civic body has set up medical support cells at its hospitals and has made arrangements to provide first aid
kits as well as ambulances to election centres with the aim to effectively tackle emergencies during the polling on
April 23 and 29.
The measures have been undertaken by the Pune Municipal Corproation (PMC) to extend prompt medical care to
employees and voters at the polling booths. “We have deployed two ambulances with doctors in eight designated
areas. The first aid kits have been distributed to 552 polling stations,” said Sanjeev Wavare, assistant medical officer
of health, PMC.
“If a person needs hospitalisation even after receiving first aid, then he or she can be immediately moved to a nearby
hospital,” Wavare said. – The Times of India
