“Marikina City received an ambulance with advanced life support (ALS) system with complete set of equipment for pre-hospital care,” Mayor Marcelino "Marcy" Teodoro stated on Wednesday.

A Japanese city turned over a fully-equipped ambulance to the city government of Marikina.

Sakai Mayor Masahiro Hashimoto showed the donation to Teodoro during the latter's visit to Japan last week.

He added that the ambulance has mobile and fixed oxygen supply equipment, regulator suction equipment, built-in pulse oximeter, automated external defibrillator, blood pressure meter, nebulizer, and equipment for immobilization.

The gift is an excellent addition to Marikina City's life-saving vehicles, according to Teodoro. He also voiced appreciation for their new donation to the Sakai people, stating that it will be used to serve more Marikina families.

Marikina has been the sister city of Sakai under a memorandum of agreement signed in 2017.

“In Marikina City, we ensure the immediate response to the needs of our community, especially during disasters and other emergencies. Donations such as these are always great addition to our emergency vehicles. More vehicles would mean more families served. To Sakai (City), we are very much grateful,’’ the mayor said.

To mention, during Hashimoto's visit last February 19, the city also donated a fire truck to Marikina City.
