The extrication equipment, used to rescue people trapped in car accidents, is being shared and donated by U Maung (Rescue).

Extrication equipment to pull out victims trapped in car accidents is being donated, and its uses are shared, according to a freelance public rescuer U Maung (Rescue).
“When people are trapped in a car accident, they need to be pulled out to rescue. So, we are donating patient extrication equipment. In addition, we provide personal assistance,” he said.
Previously, he travelled around Myanmar to train in patient rescue and transport and found that people trapped in an accident could die due to delays in the authorities arriving to help, so he has been donating such equipment and giving training on how to use it, he said.

A person trapped in the cabin during a car accident is being pulled out by extrication equipment and its uses are being shared.

“This time, I donate the equipment. I pay all the transport charges by myself to ask them some questions. For example, I asked how to pull out a trapped patient in the front cabin. Based on their knowledge and my knowledge, I help them in a practical way,” said U Maung (Rescue).
He has been donating rescue equipment since 2020, and the total amount has exceeded 40.
“In this regard, I donate the equipment throughout Myanmar and give training on how to use it. I have donated more than 40 sets. In both the old Yangon-Mandalay highway and the new highway, I donated eight sets in eight locations. I started donating in 2020. More than 40 locations include Yangon-Hpa-an, Yangon-Mawlamyine, Yangon-Pathein, Chaungthar, Nay Pyi Taw-Magway, Aungban in Northern Shan State and Kyaukse, and Pinlaung,” he said. — Thit Taw/ZN/ED
