During Eid al-Adha, the Ministry of Health took holiday precautions to ensure the continuity of emergency healthcare services across the country. In this context, vehicles and healthcare teams were on standby in the Kulu district of Konya.
Due to the increased traffic congestion following Eid al-Adha, the Ministry of Health had helicopters, emergency ambulances, Search and Rescue (UMKE) teams, and motorized units on standby in the Kulu district of Konya. Kulu district is an important transportation hub in the Central Anatolia Region, experiencing heavy traffic congestion. These measures were taken to ensure prompt emergency healthcare services.
At the intersection of the Ankara-Konya-Kırıkkale-Aksaray highways, which are among Turkey's important transit routes, the Kulu Junction connects them. In the parking area of the General Directorate of Highways, Gültekin Topçam Maintenance Facility located at Kulu Junction, ambulance helicopters, emergency ambulances, Search and Rescue (UMKE) teams, and motorized units were deployed for duty.
In anticipation of potential accidents due to the high traffic volume at Kulu Junction on the last day of the holiday, a 14-member healthcare team was on standby to provide early intervention and medical assistance to the injured. This was done to ensure prompt response and care in case of any accidents that might occur.
