Dubai's Ambulances are hitting the waves!

Remember when we spoke about the amazing new ambulances that have been introduced in Dubai? But what if you’re in the middle of the sea and need medical assistance?

Supercar ambulances aren’t really going to help! That’s why Dubai Ambulance are looking into creating ambulance boats.

Currently, Dubai Ambulance work with the Dubai Coast Guard when there is an emergency out at sea.

Dubai’s aim is to be able to provide ambulances quickly and efficiently, that’s why their new fleet involves cars like 4x4’s for desert emergencies, and motorbikes or bicycles for narrow streets.

“The large boat would be 30ft and be fully equipped, including two stretchers. The smaller boat would be 8ft,” said Zaid Al Mamari, Teamleader at the Seaports Team of Dubai Ambulance.
