Lagos State government has launched a floating clinic boat to enhance safety on waterways.
The general manager of the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA), Oluwadamilola Emmanuel, said the launching was in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Lagos State Ambulance Services and the Primary Health Care Board.
“What we are playing at also is to have our own core emergency and response boats with the jetties control room, which will be launched in two months’ time,” he said at the official launching of the boat at the Five Cowries Terminal, Falomo, Ikoyi.
Mr Emmanuel said that they would be going out for medical missions around the riverine areas of Lagos State.
“Apart from the floating clinic which is going to respond to an emergency, we are going to have the core emergency response team, which is made up of local divers, boat captain, and others,” Mr Emmanuel said.
