The Spanish region of Aragon needs up to 41 life support systems, 12 advanced units and a fleet of new, fully-equipped ambulances to bring its emergency services up to standard. Of the region's 121 healthcare areas, distributed around the cities of Zaragoza, Huesca and Teruel, 94 do not have automatic defibrillators, 56 lack immobilising equipment and 24 do not have resuscitation equipment. Regional health minister Alberto Larraz submitted the plan to central government with a budget of Pta2.3 billion ($11.7 million). Aragon, Spain's fourth largest region, is part of the national healthcare service, Insalud, which purchases centrally by public tender.
