National Ambulance launches ‘Safe and Healthy Ramadan campaign’

AmbulanceLaunching Safe and Healthy Ramadan campaign, National Ambulance has focused on three main elements, promoting a sense of responsibility and care for community and public safety by adhering to the Covid-19 general preventive measures for the month of Ramadan

Ahmed Saleh Al Hajeri, CEO of National Ambulance, said, “As we enter the last ten days of Ramadan, I would like to reassure the community that National Ambulance remains at full readiness and heightened levels of preparedness. This comes as part of the proactive measures we have taken to ensure an effective and rapid response to potential emergency incidents that may arise during the holy month and Eid. I would also urge people to continue following and adhering to the preventive measures issued by the concerned authorities and support UAE’s concerted efforts in protecting the health and safety during and after Ramadan as we all move forward towards full recovery and successfully overcoming this pandemic.”

In its campaign, National Ambulance encourages members of the community to adopt good health practices for safe fasting during the holy month, the most important of which is to consult a physician prior to fasting for Covid-19 patients, pregnant and lactating women and people with chronic medical condition. 

With regard to safe driving behaviors, National also calls on drivers to refrain from driving when fatigued, and in the event that this happens while they are already en-route, they must stop in a safe place and take a rest and a little walk to energise, and park the vehicles in the designated places when attending Taraweeh or Tahajud prayers and avoid obstructing traffic.

National Ambulance provides urgent pre-hospital care in the Northern Emirates which can be requested through the dedicated 998 emergency ambulance number and NA 998 mobile application. Its primary task is to work on the frontline to provide high standards of pre-hospital emergency medical services for serious illness and injuries to citizens, residents and visitors across the Emirates of Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al-Khaimah and Fujairah. Qualified ambulance crews combined with an advanced fleet and medical technologies are able to provide the appropriate care for patients in medical emergencies, trauma and public health crisis.
