On April 9, three Foton negative pressure ambulances procured by Philippine Red Cross (PRC) successfully arrived at Manila Port, Philippines and two parties completed the vehicle inspection and customs clearance at the port. As the first cooperation order for first batch of negative pressure ambulances between two parties, these ambulances will be directly used for local pandemic relief to help transport the patients from their homes to designated COVID-19 medical establishments. These ambulances have become the first batch of negative pressure ambulances in Philippines and Foton has become the China’s first negative pressure ambulance export enterprise.
Referred to as “Mobile N95 mask”, the negative pressure ambulance is mainly characterized by “negative pressure isolation” to guard the medical personnel against cross infection and eliminate the further spread of epidemic. This negative pressure ambulance can be internally fitted with multiple professional rescue equipment, featuring excellent isolation, anti-corrosion, ventilation, and bacteria resistance performances.
TOANO negative pressure ambulance incorporates super-large refitting space, with the overall length nearly at 6m and the internal height at 1.7m. With stable driving maneuverability and easily accessible medical equipment, the medical personnel can provide emergent treatment on the patients with relived minds. It's also additionally refitted with negative pressure equipment, complete rescue equipment, including respirator, defibrillator, and ECG monitor, as well as UV disinfection lamp and central oxygen supply interface.
Following the further spread of epidemic, Philippines is increasingly in urgent need of professional rescue equipment. Philippine Red Cross (PRC) actively contacted Foton and completed the first order for 3 ambulances in the middle of March after learning that Foton manufactured and donated negative pressure ambulances for China’s anti-pandemic rescues. Previously, there was no negative pressure ambulance in the strict sense in Philippines. Since then, Foton has become China’s first commercial vehicle manufacturer for export of negative pressure ambulances for overseas anti-pandemic campaign.
As a matter of fact, Foton always pays close attention to and supports the Philippine local public welfare and has been in cooperation with Philippine Red Cross (PRC) for 10 years and donated accumulatively >10 ambulances. As a subsequent cooperation plan, two parties have already signed cooperation agreement for second batch of three negative pressure ambulances, which were expected to arrive at Philippines on April 22. In addition, Foton (Philippines) has stored 70 conventional ambulances locally for emergency needs of Philippines anti-pandemic relief supplies and equipment. In addition to Philippines, Foton will aid the world with high-quality high-standard products and continue to proactively make contribution to the guarantee of global anti-pandemic “lifeline”.
