What is EGAS?
When an accident or other unforeseen medical emergency occurs, mere seconds can determine whether a victim lives or dies. Mitigating circumstances almost always exist as well that the untrained individual cannot identify. As a result of this, several studies have document the importance of pre-hospital care and the considerable impact it has on successful patient recovery. As a developing country, the resources and attention required to ably run a free public health care system is enormous, so much so that essential emergency measures that can mean the difference between life and death are often neglected in the face of other competing demands. In the face of these realities, we are faced with the fact that we must take responsibility for emergency responses in our own hands to protect ourselves and individuals that fall under our care. Currently, the cost for Emergency Ambulances Transport Services can run in excess of JMD $50,000, a burden that in many cases must be borne by the organization should the incident occur at the work place.
