Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Ahmad Khan Buzdar says Punjab Emergency Service is a dynamic institution which has been rendering effective relief and rescue activities for the past fifteen years.
Addressing a ceremony in Lahore today on the occasion of completion of fifteen years of rescue 1122, he said that all possible resources will be spent for the development of the rescue 1122 and welfare of its staff.
He said that rescue 1122 is the only rescue organization, registered by the United Nation which is a matter of honour.
He said that the work circle of the rescue 1122 will be expanded to every tehsil in the near future.
He said that rescue 1122 brilliantly maintained its record of an average seven-minute response in case of any emergency.
Sardar Usman Buzdar said that the Punjab Emergency Service has launched its motorcycle emergency service to rescue victims at remote and far-flung areas with a four-minute response time.
He said that seventy five thousands persons have been rescued so far by the rescue 1122 while precious goods worth billions of rupees were saved from fire by its firemen.
