No!!! (v.) = be at hand ; be on hand ; be around. Ex: A shortage of books makes things slightly difficult but help is at hand from the USSR. Ex: Another rota system operates in some magistrates courts, whereby a duty solicitor is on hand to assist people facing criminal charges who otherwise would be unrepresented = En algunos juzgados de asuntos menores el sistema de turnos es diferente pues siempre hay un abogado procurador de guardia a mano para ayudar a la gente acusada de delito criminal que de lo contrario no tendrían representación. Ex: Her plans for the night fell through, none of her friends were around, and her husband was out with the guys.
