Dubai: Female cycle responders will now be deployed to cater to emergency cases involving women and children in Dubai’s busiest areas, the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS) announced.

The emergency bicycles, which will cover crowded areas, such as shopping malls and commercial places, is part of a new specialised service launched by DCAS to ensure fast and effective medical assistance to female patients.

Khalifa Bin Drai, DCAS’s executive director, said the deployment of female cycle responders is an addition to the female responder service offered by DCAS, which was launched to give emergency treatment to ladies, pregnant women and injured children up to the age of 11.

“Following the success of the female responder service, and after receiving requests to expand our high-quality service, we have launched the female cycle responder, which will continue to ensure the privacy of women and preserve our Islamic customs and traditions,” he said.

He added that the initiative comes within the framework of strengthening the functions of DCAS and activating its role in addressing the needs of the community, noting that DCAS always monitors the needs of the people through observations made by paramedics and other emergency personnel.
