During this nationwide lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, the only vehicles we see and appreciate for being on the road are the emergency and essential vehicles. But what if these vehicles end up facing difficulties in upkeeping? In such unprecedented times, it has become difficult to reach out to technicians and mechanics when these services are of much importance.
Further, the local authorities are realising that the society needs critical support of technicians and other workers who provide essential maintenance to ensure the smooth running of water, electricity, sewerage, and repair and maintenance of essential vehicles. To that effect, #OpenForHeroes, an initiative by the Gurugram-based automotive service startup GoMechanic, has come forward to help these vehicles by providing technicians and mechanics for the required maintenance.
On March 25, the day the lockdown came into effect across India, GoMechanic announced the #OpenForHeroes initiative to support emergency and essential vehicles such as ambulances, police vehicles, etc., across the top metro cities.
