Amid the widespread misuse of ambulances in situations that are not strictly emergencies, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency will soon introduce an easy-to-use tool to help judge whether a person’s condition is serious enough to merit calling one.

The agency will launch a website and a smartphone app around the end of this month that will help people quickly find out whether one’s condition requires emergency transport or is stable enough that they can visit the hospital by themselves.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
