The Ambulance and Rescue Section at the Central Operations of Ras Al Khaimah Police carried out around 15 missions and dedicated 600 hours of work to vehicles crashes, saving people from drowning and pulling up boats that had sunk in the second quarter of the year.

It also took part in ensuring safety at boat races and other similar events.

Lieutenant Colonel Majed bin Salem Al Qassimi, head of the ambulance and rescue section, said a special programme was established to supervise beaches in the emirate to prevent accidents, particularly around beaches highly frequented by the public and families.

Members worked to ensure the safety of beachgoers from risks of drowning, heat exhaustion and sudden fainting.

He said the section operated three daily patrols to monitor safety in these areas and quickly respond to any emergency.
