Today in Dubrovnik, the Prefect of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County Nikola Dobroslavić, handed over to the director of the County Emergency Medicine Institute, Luka Lulić, the keys to another ambulance worth almost half a million Kuna.
This new ambulance will be used to cover a part of the Peljesac region and all the way to Orašac.
Mayor Dobroslavić said that the renewal of the vehicle fleet is an additional incentive for the Emergency Medical Service to continue to perform its work successfully.
“We are very pleased with our Institute, the doctors, the drivers, the technicians and the nurses. They have had a difficult period in the COVID-19 crisis, which along with other health professionals they carried successfully together and I thank them for that,” commented Dobroslavić. And added that this year an Emergency Helicopter Service was also provided.
Lulić stated that “This is our 29th vehicle in the fleet, we are trying as hard as we can, and we hope to renew the vehicle fleet in more detail next year, I think that the conditions have been met and that the economic situation has improved, so we will meet that goal. Yesterday I was in Zadar, in the port of Gaženica, where the Minister of Health signed a contract for the procurement of six high-speed ships for emergency medical service. Their primary purpose is rescue at sea, protection and rescue, but of course also emergency medical care of patients from remote islands. The value of this contract is just over 76 million Kuna.”
