This project provides the WADI Khaled EMS station in Lebanon with an ambulance, hereby supporting both Syrian refugees and host communities in the region. – LRCS EMS station Wadi Khaled in Northern Lebanon is situated close to the Syrian border. Within the complex political context of this region the EMS station takes up a key role in providing EMS services to all beneficiaries in need: both Syrians and host communities.
– EMS station Wadi Khaled is situated far from hospitals. If an ambulance is in use, it can take on average 3 hours before it returns to the station to be able to serve other patients. High mileage contributes to the overuse, hence ambulances age quickly.
– EMS station Wadi Khaled has currently two ambulances for four shifts, two during the day and two during the night. In case of any reparations to be conducted on one of the ambulances the teams will be reduced to only one and hence the responding capacities will be decreased.
