The ambulances can be used for free by residents of the city. 

In a Facebook post, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said they will continuously aim to upgrade the city’s facilities, especially its medical facilities and equipment amid the pandemic. 

“Layunin po ng Pamahalaang Lungsod na lalong paunlarin ang ating mga medical facilities and equipment upang mapataas din ang antas ng kalusugan ng bawat Batang Maynila (It is the city government’s aim to further improve our medical facilities and equipment to increase each Manileño’s quality of health),” he said. 

“Every life that we will be able to save using this ambulance is valuable,” he added. 

The new ambulances from America cost a total of P300 million, Domagoso said. They arrived in the city in December 2020.

First aiders who will operate the ambulances will receive professional training, the Manila mayor said.
