Bocholt (PID). The “lead times” for ambulances (KTW) of the Bocholt ambulance, ie the time in which the vehicles are ready, have been significantly expanded in recent months. It is a total of 1.460 hours a year. An important part of the revised “Rescue Service Requirements Plan of the District of Borken” has thus been implemented.
This expansion relieves the ambulance transport vehicles (RTW), which are primarily intended to be available for emergency rescue. In its meeting on March 12, 2020, the district council updated the emergency medical services requirement plan for the district of Borken. The retention time for the KTW 2 in Bocholt was increased by around 1.460 hours per year. The KTW was originally available eight hours a day (8 a.m. to 16 p.m.). The KTW is now available daily from 7 a.m. to 19 p.m.
"By extending the lead times, we can shorten waiting times for patient transport," says Jörg Telaar, deputy. Head of the fire and rescue station.
