Saras foundation has taken an initiative to bring the awareness of road safety to the local schools and colleges. In this program, it has arranged a Presentation to the students of Hindusthan Arts and Science College in Coimbatore.
With more funding from public, we will create control rooms that receive mayday calls from accident sites. We will also set up a team of Professionals to provide First-Aid at accident sites.
Once we have grown in economic strength, Saras Foundation aims to provide free treatment to road accident victims from poorer socio-economic groups.
- Receive Mayday calls from accident sites
- Provision of expert paramedical teams in ambulances to carry out resuscitation and basic life support before transporting victims to local hospitals.
- Support for victims and their families
- Counselling for bereaved families should death occur
Of the casualties from serious road traffic accidents, 50% suffer serious injuries to the cardiovascular and/or central nervous systems and die in the first 15 minutes. However for the other 50% of victims, basic-life support and first aid arranged within the first (golden) hour of injury has the potential to save many of lives.
