Karachi—The DHA has established a number of heat stroke prevention camps to help provide necessary first aid to the affected persons.
A DHA statement on Wednesday said that the ‘metropolis is in grip of severe heat wave these days which warrants taking proper preventive measures to avoid heat stroke.
DHA, aware of its social responsibilities as a corporate body, established a number of Heat Stroke Preventive Camps in DHA to provide essential first aid treatment to the affected persons and to evacuate them to Heat Stroke Treatment Centre at DHA Medical Centre if required, the statement added.
Coolers of cold drinking water, tang and lemonade (nimu pani) and wet towels were kept at these camps to beat off the effects of the scorching heat wave.
