Resource description


First Intervention Ghana (FIG), a Ghana originated voluntary basic life support ambulance and medical mission organization has been in existence since 2009 with high dedicated volunteer personalities as executive members.

Our aim is to serve as a key component of our rural health care system and to provide quality rapid response emergency medical care ambulance services in our area in addition to youth and community development programmes for sustainable human development. First Intervention Ghana also host and place internship volunteers on various facilities of their choice in Cape Coast, Ghana.

It has been established that wherever more people congregate, the potential for emergency to occur must be presumed. Thus in our work places or facilities and occasions (ceremonial, conference, tournament, hospitality, funeral, service delivery etc) and communities there must be the presence of trained first aid providers to offer emergency services and support in the event of the need arising.

On the other front also, road accidents continually occur our roads with fatal consequences. The causes of such accidents are attributable to both human and mechanical errors. When such accidents occur, the extent of most of the fatalities and damages could be minimize where knowledge of first aid and emergency management immediately exist. Unfortunately, most of the drivers and the occupants of these vehicles lacks such knowledge hence lives and properties are lost.

Despite impressive records of training courses and numbers of trained first aiders, experience has shown that in an emergency, it is difficult to find first-aiders at the right place and at the right time, not due to lack of volunteers but due to lack of preparedness and organization.

The worse in disaster is when those with the necessary knowledge and skills to manage the situation are fewer than the victims.

The interest of First Intervention Ghana in basic life support ambulance service is primarily concerned with regards to accident and other emergency situations because administering pre-clinical care immediately by medical people with requisite First Aid knowledge may reduce needless deaths or less impact.

Certain situations in life require immediate medical care and a fraction of a second delay can drastically change somebody's life. The ambulance serviceand paramedics are very important in society as they save hundreds of lives daily by responding to emergency calls.

As part of our strategic plan and our quest to reduce vulnerability, mitigate needless fatalities and respond appropriately, a partnership needs to be formed with strategic organization like yours to equip us with necessary equipment to management emergency effectively.
