ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates-Tuesday 10 January 2017 [ AETOS Wire ]

Ahmed Saleh Al Hajeri, Deputy CEO at the National Ambulance underlined the National Ambulance’s eagerness to provide emergency services around the clock in all areas of the Northern Emirates, through a specialized operations room, a myriad of qualified medical staff and a fleet of ambulances equipped with the latest emergency and technical tools and instruments. These services reflect the National Ambulance’s commitment to achieve continuous innovation and excellence in the various services provided to the community.

Additionally, Al Hajeri pointed out that the National Ambulance is taking part in the team of Government Accelerators of the Ministry of Interior (MoI) challenge aimed to reduce road fatalities on five main roads in the UAE by 21%. This campaign is launched in cooperation with strategic partners, namely the Traffic and Patrols Department at the Police General Headquarters (GHQs), the Ministry of Infrastructure Development, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), and the Emirates Traffic Safety Society.

It is worth mentioning that the National Ambulance has been commissioned to handle emergencies with the aim of raising the chances of survival of traffic accidents’ victims in areas falling under its mandate in Northern Emirates including Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. This constitutes one of the main axes for achieving the objectives of this challenge.

Furthermore, Al Hajeri noted that the National Ambulance launched many new and innovative initiatives in line with the latest international practices. “The National Ambulance seeks to implement such initiatives during the challenge period,” he explained. Moreover, he said that these initiatives include redistributing ambulatory points in places where previous accidents were concentrated based on statistics and studies; relying on dynamic positioning to ensure rapid and effective response; and allocating air ambulance patrols in collocation and coordination with the Air Wing Department at the MoI during the mornings and afternoons on the targeted roads; in addition to other initiatives that will be implemented in cooperation with strategic partners.

Al Hajeri said that the National Ambulance launched a number of awareness programs this year to promote the ambulatory culture, raise public awareness about ambulatory practices, and boost the public’s readiness in dealing with emergencies. “These initiatives varied between employing social media, media and cinema screens, to direct communication with the public through community participation and national exhibitions,” explained Al Hajeri.

Government accelerators are a future-focused work mechanism, which includes joint work teams from government, private and academic sectors. Five core sectors will be key thrust areas under an ambitious plan to achieve the national agenda goals accelerating the implementation of the strategic government projects through dedicated and innovative workspaces comprehending joint work teams that operate under the supervision of a group of trainers, supervisors and global competencies, to provide intensive programs in short periods.

Government accelerators provide services to support the various involved government agencies, whose primary goal is to accelerate the achievement of the national agenda’s objectives in four key areas i.e. national indicators, policies, programs and initiatives, in addition to government services. It includes forming joint work teams from various state entities, to address the challenges and achieve the goals, by leveraging global experiences and innovations, as well as achieving leadership and excellence in government work through the implementation of projects and experiences through pioneering and innovative work methods to ensure quick results and sustainability.
