Do you know about the 1298 service?

The 1298 service is an emergency ambulance service run by a non profit trust. It has 21 cardiac ambulances all over Mumbai including Navi Mumbai.

Mumbai residents can dial 1298 from a landline or a mobile and a state of the art cardiac ambulance along with an emergency trained doctor will be at your doorstep for a nominal fee.

These ambulances are equipped with a portable ECG, external cardiac defibrillator, ventilator, pulse oximeter and IV fluids facility.

The 1298 facility can also be called during an emergency or a crisis situation. Their ambulances were used to ferry injured NSG commandos, victims and police personnel during 26/11.
