Before the Christmas and Christmas Eve festivities, President Luis Abinader delivered 13 ambulances, five vans, and 40 vans to the National Health Service’s (SNS) Directorate of Out-of-Hospital Emergency Care Services, the response component of the 911 System.

Upon his arrival, in his Tesla, the head of State was received by the director of the National Health Service, Mario Lama; the director of the 911 System, Randolfo Rijo; the director of the Directorate of Out-of-Hospital Emergency Services of the SNS, Juan Manuel Méndez; the lieutenant colonel pilot, Harold Jiménez, deputy director of the 911 System and the Minister of the Presidency, Joel Santos.
He immediately went to the interior of the entity to observe a new control center of the 911 network, which has integrated all the institutions of the State that have to do with security and emergency so that the service is “more efficient.”
“911 is working in an integrated manner with the Police and for the first time with the Military and Police Commission (Comipol), of RDVial. We are already becoming more efficient,” said the President.
The delivery of the 58 vehicles was made in the esplanade of the National Emergency and Security Attention System 911 of this capital.
