Spotlight On NAS: We Attend To Emergency Cases Not Carrying Dead Bodies

The National Ambulance Service (NAS) established in the year 2004 as an agency of the Ministry of Health and a product of collaboration between the Ministry of Health and the Ghana National Fire Service of the Ministry of Interior.

As a statutory agency, NAS has been charged with specific roles and responsibilities of establishing and operating a nationwide comprehensive pre-hospital emergency care.

Our reporter Mary Quartey sat with Principal Advance Emergency Medical Technician, Mr DANIEL ASARE who is the GREATER ACCRA REGIONAL ADMINISTRATOR for the National Ambulance Service following inadequate knowledge by a number of Ghanaians coupled with other related misconceptions.

NAS has since its inception migrated from Seven (7) Stations in Three (3) Regions to presence in every district of the country. The Service runs a two tier Administrative system, the Head office and District Levels (operational level).

There is however a unitary coordinating staff at the regional level. The Head Office is the main Administrative harp of the service with its main function being to divulge Government policies and develop operational policies and protocol for the service.

He vehemently disregarded the popular misconception of the Service carrying dead bodies due to the abuse of the siren.

He hence gave some education on the Ambulance and it’s equipments.

He equally cautioned the general public to deter from pranking the system.
