cancel

Thiruvananthapuram:  The police-fire force tie-up that came to the rescue of people with serious and long-term illness in urgent need of their constant medicines,  has been winning kudos from the people. 

In a matter of 12 days the two uniformed arms of the state government were able to deliver medicines to 940 patients at their homes.

The project which was initially rolled out in one police station each in Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi as a pilot drive,  met with instant succcess and was soon expanded to cover other districts.  Designated police stations were entrusted with the task of collecting medicines in all of the 14 districts.  

The medicines are delivered with the co-operation of Fire Force and highway patrolling teams.  Doctors,  hospital officials and patients' relatives can hand over the medicines to the specified police stations in respective districts with the name and address of the patient.  If any one is unable to physically take them to the police station, they can contact helpline no: 112 and the police will collect the items from their homes.

The mobile app 'bueTelemed' used by Kerala police to assist the public who are unable to come out of their houses during lockdown,  has become a hit by now,  with 4,606 people having received doctors' service through video conference.
