Ambulances are not only vital in transporting sick or injured persons to a hospital quickly but their equipment may also save lives along the way. Many ambulances carry life-support equipment which must be able to operate when needed in an emergency.
For this reason, they have batteries on stand-by to provide the electrical power needed to run. Ensuring that the batteries are also reliable and ready to be used, Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Malaysia (Bosch AA) recently donated batteries to Selayang Hospital in Selangor as part of its ongoing corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative ‘Safer Cars, Safer Roads’.
“We admire and greatly appreciate the tireless efforts of the medical community in Malaysia. Donating batteries to the hospital is our way to support the healthcare sector in the country as batteries are essential in ambulances because it is required to power up the life support equipment in the vehicle during emergency responses,” said Dillion Goh, Country Business Director of Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Malaysia.
“Ambulances are a vital part of emergency response and we would like to encourage other Bosch AA distributors to also join us and play a small part in ensuring that the ambulances are well maintained so our healthcare workers can continue to save lives safely,” said Mr. Goh.
The company’s engagement with the healthcare sector has been ongoing since 2020. At that time, Bosch AA contributed maintenance-free batteries and cabin batteries for powering important medical equipment, as well as windscreen wipers for use on ambulances, to the Sungai Buloh Hospital which was a key health facility during the COVID-19 pandemic.
