Management of emergencies is of serious concern to the state of Kerala specially in the light of increasing road accidents, health related problems, outbreak of diseases and unexpected natural disasters etc. While 45% of emergencies are owing to road accidents 55% is health related emergencies. It is an established fact that effective emergency response will significantly reduce deaths, disabilities suffering from length of hospital stay etc. The critical concept in trauma is "golden hour", which means to say, more than 50% of all accident mortality takes place within the 1st hour. It is highly significant, in this context, to establish emergency response services in the state of Kerala on a large scale.
