Moreover, The Fire Department cooperates with “Ultraman” again.  By considering the monster element, children can drive the mini fire trucks and protect our city with Ultraman together. 


During this event, the Taipei City Fire Department holds a welcoming "Heart" Life Thanks Convention and especially invites firefighters, doctors, and patients who have recovered from Myocardial Infarction, to share the joy of successful collaboration between the Fire Department and the Health Department. Meanwhile, the establishment of the "Taipei Point-of-Care Ultrasound Team" (TPOCUS) allows emergent medical technicians to use ultrasound technology to diagnose injuries efficiently. For instance, post-intubation complications, air and blood accumulation in the chest or pericardium, and abdominal fluid accumulation or bleeding can be diagnosed efficiently in critical situations. 


The Fire Department states that the efficiency and effectiveness of Emergency Medical Services in Taipei City is distinguished and renowned across the country. They can quickly arrive at the scene when a disaster occurs, provide the injured with the most appropriate first aid treatment, and transport them to an appropriate hospital. They aim to enhance pre-hospital emergency medical treatments and minimize disaster casualties. This also plays an important part in disaster prevention. The Fire Department encourages the public to keep aware of the importance of disaster prevention and protect our families together.
