Ambulances to be able to cross Panama-Costa Rica border

Malou Mendoza P. 19 nov 2016 - 13:50h

Ambulances of the Red Cross of Panama and Costa Rica will have expedited border controls from both countries thanks to a communication protocol signed by different local institutions.

The initiative will allow emergency responses in the case of accidents or natural disasters that occur in the neighboring areas.

According to a press release from the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the agreement covers immigration and customs regulations. The Red Cross had been excluded from previous international agreements.

The measure will also apply to fire departments.
