Dubai's Female-Only Ambulances

Now Dubai Has Female-Only Ambulances

Dubai is already home to pink-top taxis - which allow only women and families to travel in cabs driven by females – plus carriages for women and children on public transportation. Now the emirate has introduced ambulances that can only be used by females and kids under 12.

The Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services rolled out the new vehicles on Saturday and they will probably be most useful for people going into labor. Initially available in the Deira neighborhood, it's expected to expand to Bur Dubai in the next couple of months providing it proves a success. All drivers and medics on board are female and currently on-hand 12 hours each day.

"The use of emergency vehicles only for women and children is among twenty-four specialized services offered by the corporation," said Khalifa Bin Darai, executive director of DCAS, told The National. "The female paramedics have completed several training courses and are able to provide the appropriate treatment in very short time."
