Rescue 15 Islamabad Police

The quality and reliability of IHS Rescue Services is apparent by the fact that IHS is the founder of Islamabad Police Rescue 15 Medical Operations. In December 1999 the Islamabad Police initiated the concept of Rescue 15 services in Pakistan on the pattern of 911 in US. This required an emergency medical unit. At this juncture IHS joined hands with ITP in providing medical support. IHS based 4 of its doctors trained in ACLS at the Rescue 15 center in sector G-8, Islamabad, on 6 hour daily shift basis along with 3 ambulances. All Police officers at the center were given training in first aid while 8 officers were attached with the medical unit as Medics after gaining training from 'Khansa Institute of Paramedical Sciences', an IHS teaching institution. Later in 2002 IHS also started managing the Traffic Police Medical Office where an IHS doctor was deputed to conduct medical examination of driving license applicants. While in 2003 IHS signed an agreement with Islamabad Police to manage the 'Police Hospital' at Police Lines in sector H-11. However this project couldn’t take off due to various problems. That finally led to IHS pulling out of all Police projects in September 2005.
