Dubai launches women-only ambulances

146

Four women in pink remain on standby 12 hours a day, seven days a week, to come to the aid of their “sisters” in Dubai.

The four – two medics and two drivers – are leading a pilot project for a women-only pink ambulance service that aims to expedite medical care by helping patients feel more at ease

The government-run Women Responders unit operating in the district of Deira has had 25 callouts since it launched three weeks ago, none of them major emergencies.

Ten years ago, Dubai launched “Ladies and Families Taxis,” a pink fleet of cabs driven by women and serving women and their children.

The service is still available, and popular, across Dubai, a member of the United Arab Emirates
