District Collector N. Mukteswara Rao on Saturday launched three new 108 ambulance services, with a call to the people to use them in emergency situations. He himself drove a vehicle, and made inquiries from the staff about the utility value of the various facilities available.

Mr. Rao stressed that personal safety was everyone’s right and use of 108 ambulances would enable people to realise this right. While praising the services, he said they were being extended to people efficiently, with just a phone call away.
