Sirens Fitted in Ambulance and any Agency Vehicles to be Different from Police and Law Enforcement Agencies

TMB Report

Imphal: An order issued by the Governor of Manipur notified that all the sirens fitted in the Ambulance vehicles and any agencies other than Police and law enforcement agencies should not be similar to those used by Police and Law enforcement agencies in terms of type and sound.

The order is issued by keeping the prevailing law and order situation of the State and for effective maintenance of law and order situation in the State, the State Government views the matter regarding the issues arising out of the use of sirens with similar sounds being used by Ambulance and Police & Law enforcing agencies, thereby creating lots of confusion and panicky situation to the general public.

Therefore, considering the sensitive nature of the use of the same sirens by different Authorities and to avoid any kind of likely misunderstanding that may occur amongst the general public, T. Ranjit Singh, Commissioner (Home) Government of Manipur had issued the order on behalf of the Governor of Manipur.

The order also notifies the Transport Department to issue necessary orders in this regard.
