The Dubai Police have released figures of land-rescue missions conducted in 2016, at a huge 26,257.
The rescue missions include: cutting traffic accident victims from vehicles, rescuing people lost in the desert and rescuing people trapped in homes or elevators.
Brigadier Dr. Muhammad Nasser Al Razouqi, deputy director of the Search and Rescue Department at Dubai Police, said the Dubai Police averaged a quick response time.
“The target response time is less than 12 minutes, but our teams’ average is 7-8 minutes, as response speed is crucial in the incidents we attend to.”
