Alert among the people of Vigo for the consequences that may arise from the decision of gas stations not to supply fuel to the ambulances that operate in Vigo and O Morrazo.

The origin of this conflict is due to the fact that the company Ambulancias do Atlántico, awarded the contract to carry out this service, has accumulated in recent months – as the unions have denounced – delays in payroll payments, lack of liquidity for vehicle refueling and other supply problems. An extreme situation that has led the Galician administration to intervene in the company.

Ambulances do Atlántico was awarded the contracts to carry out medical transportation (urgent and scheduled) in the areas of Vigo, Cangas, and Moaña, and said contracts are now in a situation of extension. In fact, the administration has indicated that the tender for a new contract is in process.

Given this serious economic situation of the company, a single service station continues to “trust” Ambulances do Atlántico vehicles. But this situation forces the Moaña and Cangas ambulances to have to leave their area of ​​operations every time they have to refuel.

From 061 they have stated that they are “aware of the concern” of the Ambulances do Atlántico workers and the risks that this situation implies for citizens. In fact, according to Galicia Press, In recent days, there has been several information that points to delays resulting from this type of inconvenience that workers face.. “Recently, an ambulance had to come from Vigo to attend to an emergency in O Morrazo, with a delay of about half an hour to assist a person in cardiorespiratory arrest,” the media notes.

However, From 061 itself, the provision of the service in these areas has been guaranteed with public intervention and that they are working “in a responsible and committed manner.”

Meanwhile, the labor conflict in the company continues and the unions CC.OO., CIG and USO have called a strike for May 2 and 3, after denouncing the delays and non-payment of their salaries, in addition to other labor problems.
