The National Institute for Emergency Medicine (NIEMS) on Wednesday signed a memorandum of understanding with the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) to provide a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS).

The MOU signing ceremony between NIEMS secretary-general Dr Atchariya Pangma and CAAT director-general Chula Sukmanop was held at Miracle Grand Hotel in Bangkok and was presided over by Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul.

The HEMS would become useful for the timely transport of critically-ill or critically injured persons to a hospital and hence helpful in reducing the death rates from critical ailments and road accidents especially in areas not easily accessed by other transport means.
