An agreement has been reached between the Ministry of Social Affairs of the Republic of Estonia, the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Estonia and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Latvia on “Mutual aid on providing the ambulance service in the border areas”. The Agreement was prepared and signed in September 2010 and ambulances started moving over the border in November 2010.
