As part of its ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives towards the COVID-19 relief efforts, Hero MotoCorp has handed over two first-responder vehicles to authorities at the community health centres in Neemrana and Mundawar, in the Alwar district of Rajasthan. These unique and utilitarian vehicles will be useful for reaching out to patients in rural and remote areas and comfortably moving them to the nearest hospitals.
The first responder unit has been custom-built as an accessory on the Xtreme 200R motorcycles of Hero MotoCorp. The first responder has been equipped with a full stretcher with a foldable hood mounted on the side, essential medical equipment such as a detachable first-aid kit, oxygen cylinder, fire extinguisher and other safety features such as LED Flasher Lights, foldable beacon light, emergency wireless public announcement system and siren.
They have been designed and developed through a collaborative initiative by the engineers at Hero’s Centre of Innovation and Technology (CIT) in Jaipur and the New Model Centre (NMC) at the Company’s manufacturing facility in Gurgaon. Hero MotoCorp is in the process of manufacturing several more of these first responders, which will be handed over to local health authorities in other parts of the country.
