However, ambulances are not given their due importance by the citizens and many a time they do not make way for them. It is extremely important to sensitize people on how critical it is to give way to an ambulance and if people understand this, then half the battle is won. In order for the same, Manipal Hospitals through this campaign, aims to educate and train general public the usage of handy life saving techniques like CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AED (Automated External Defibrillator).”


Speaking on the occasion Mr. P. Harishekaran, Inspector General of Police and Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic), Bengaluru city said, “It is essential for each and every one of us to know the importance of ambulances and the role they play in saving lives. It is not only the traffic police’s responsibility to make way for ambulances but all the general public’s. They need to feel empathetic and be responsive. I feel privileged to be part of this noble and unique initiative of Manipal Hospitals and congratulate each and every one behind this.” 


Supporting the initiative Ms. Shwetha R Prasad, Kannada Actress said, “I am extremely delighted to be part of this great cause and appreciate each and every one of you. Manipal Hospitals’ ‘You can save life anywhere’ campaign is truly remarkable and I hope the message ‘Give Way Save a Life’ spreads to all the public.
