After having one (1) fire truck unit in the Port of Cagayan de Oro to bolster their capabilities to respond to fire-related emergencies in ports, the Oroport Cargo Handling Services Inc. initiated the acquisition of an ambulance for the Baseport.

With the provision of an ambulance and having a qualified health and/or emergency response personnel onsite, proper and appropriate emergency care will be immediately afforded and transportation of a victim/patient to the hospital will be expedite without having to wait for other external emergency responders. Reduced travelling time to a medical facility thereby increases the chance to save one’s life in case of an accident in ports.

The acquisition of the ambulance is part of the Oroport’s commitment to the safety and health of their employees/ workers.
