City requests PCSO for two ambulances
by PIO release

The city council approved a resolution requesting the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) to donate two new ambulances to the city government to enhance the city’s health and emergency response.

The resolution is a requirement for local government units to avail of the donation of ambulances under the PCSO’s donation program.

Earlier, City Health Officer Rowena Galpo wrote PCSO Chairperson Anselmo Simeon P. Pinili requesting the PCSO for two fully equipped ambulances to help in intensifying the city government’s emergency medical response, transport of patients, and to be on standby during big events hosted by the city.

She added that currently, the City Health Services Office (CHSO) has two ambulances used by the Baguio Emergency Medical Services (BEMS) on a 24-hour basis, which is not adequate if the same has to respond to all calls and provide quality and quick emergency medical response to the requesting parties.

The BEMS responds to medical emergency and trauma cases not only in the city but also to the nearby municipalities of Benguet and the lowland provinces.

Galpo said the requested ambulances will be deployed to the BEMS under the CHSO to sustain quality emergency medical response services to residents of the city’s 128 barangays, especially the less privileged.

LGUs can avail of the ambulances through the PCSO donation program if the need for ambulances is justified.

The request for donation of ambulances must be supported by a letter request from the city government, an approved resolution by the local legislative body endorsing the request, letter from the head of the city or municipal health center that the ambulance unit will be attached to the local health center facility, and certification of availability of funds from the provincial, city, or municipal treasurer for the cost sharing of 40 percent from the total cost of the ambulance unit.

Under the PCSO’s ambulance donation program, LGUs and other requesting private and public institutions are required to provide their counterparts for the prescribed cost sharing scheme on the total cost of the ambulance that will be provided to the requesting parties.

First, second, and third class provinces, cities, and municipalities are required to provide the 40 percent counterpart on the total cost of the ambulance that will be provided to the same prior to the release of the units to the concerned LGU.
