NIWA Deploys Ambulance on Lagos Waterways

In response to incessant boat mishaps on the Lagos inland waterways, the managing director, National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA), Dr George Moghalu, has approved the deployment of new ambulance boat to the Lagos area office.

The new water craft fitted with amber lights and two 175 Horse Power engines made by Yamaha, fitted with medical equipment, first aid boxes, communication system, and stretchers, will form the fulcrum rapid response to accidents on Lagos waterways.

Rugged and built to ferry accident victims and those who require immediate medical attention to the nearest hospital and Medical Hold Bay, the ambulance watercraft can travel at controlled timing without fear or anxieties of being buffeted by high impact waves.
