~~~~~~ Jelapang Tunnel ~~~~~~

28 September 2008 - Fuyoh! Heard of highway duty before? I went for it with Yoong Xiang yesterday (27 September 2008) from 8pm to 8am. Yes, it's from pm to am. 12 hours staying in a room at Jelapang Toll. It's not bad after all, before we went, we stopped by at KFC near our school and get our free boxes of fried chickens. 2 officers who are Malays accompanied us. Encik Ramli as the driver taught us the way to remove and transfer the stretcher from the ambulance when we arrived around 9pm. Around 12 midnight, the two officers were asleep but Yoong Xiang and I were playing with each others handphones. Suddenly (every story sure got the word 'suddenly'), a person with a walkie-talkie on his hand called us and informed us that there've been an accident near North Ipoh Plaza Tol. Upon hearing that, we felt nervous because this was our first time attending highway duty and we were the lucky person to have a case for us. According to my senior, he've been attending highway duty for several times but there was hardly any case for him, but for us... We arrived at the scene 5 minutes later after wearing our gloves and flash jackets. The two officers were handling the casualty who was more serious and both of us were handling the casualty with minor injury. The casualty has a slight injury on his right shoulder, which we suspect was fracture and we apply Elevation Sling for him. Besides that, he was also suffering from a thigh injury and his jaw were bleeding which I managed to prevent it from bleeding continuously with a gauze. Our St John Ambulance transferred the more serious casualty to the Hospital Raja Permaisure Bainun while both of us were waiting for another ambulance to arrive. After 20 minutes, an ambulance from Civil Defence (Pertahanan Awam 991) arrived and they quickly transport him into the ambulance without hesitation. Alright, that's all I can tell you about the case which we encounter. The only thing funny about the whole case was when the Civil Defence left, they forgot to take their first aid kit! In order to protect the kit, Yoong Xiang and I decided to take back to our St John Office in school for the kit's safety. See, we were not only saving the casualty but a fully equipped kit as well! (Sorry, no pictures for the accident xD)
