Twenty Type B ambulances and a resuscitation vehicle capable of transporting up to five bedridden patients were transferred to Kharkiv Oblast.

This was reported by the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration.

The vehicles were received as part of the UNITED 24 program, with the support of the Office of the First Lady and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

The ambulances will be distributed among the departments of emergency medical care in the city and Kharkiv Oblast communities.

According to Kharkiv Governor Oleh Syniehubov, during the temporary occupation of Kharkiv Oblast, the vehicle fleet was badly damaged, so the replenishment of the material and technical base is urgently needed.

Emergency crews were trained abroad to work on the resuscitation vehicle.

“Our partners from the Netherlands organized the training of our employees in Poland. We sent groups there three times. Both paramedics, doctors, and drivers were trained to skillfully use all the equipment that is in this bus,” said Viktor Zabashta, director of the Center for Emergency Medical Aid and Disaster Medicine.
