Sharaj Ambulance Services was started in 2006 giving students an opportunity to attend and assist in real life medical emergency situations.
Sharaj Services utilises our rapid response vehicles to go out to scenes and stabilise patients while waiting for ambulance services to arrive. Due to the influx of calls, we have opened our own private Emergency Service. With 35 years experience we utilize our knowledge and expertise to manage our Private Ambulance Service. Our vehicles, equipment and staff are equipped to handle disasters as well as major incidents. We assist in body recovery, search and rescue in mountainous terrain, dams and rivers.
Sharaj Services also assists with training, stabilising and rescue courses that benefit the individuals and communities.
Over 12 Years ago our vision, dedication, passion and actions of the Mahabeer team have brought recognition to Sharaj Ambulance Service. Our passion led us to recognise the need for quality and equal treatment to all patients whether on medical aid or non-medical aid.
Sharaj Ambulance Service has a dedicated caring team who are very passionate about emergency care.
Over the years we have built a large network with all emergency services and medical facilities in and around the UThukela district.
