Beijing Upgrade

It is reported that Beijing is planning to upgrade its emergency medical services, in time for the 2008 Olympics.

Seemingly the upgrade will cost approximately $400M. Emergency service outlets will be arranged in 132 communities in Beijing.

Beijing Emergency Medical Center will serve as the HQ of the first-aid provision and command system. It will add 400 new ambulances to its first-aid vehicle fleet, and begin to provide helicopter-based emergency medical services.

Additionally sporting venues, major media centres and the 2008 Olympic Village will be equipped with medical equipment.

These facilities will be able to be used twenty four hours a day, in the event of an emergency.
