Dubai unveils ‘world’s smallest ambulance’ to reach off-roaders
The vehicle, which was unveiled last week by the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS), is fully equipped for emergencies
Known for breaking records for the world's tallest skyscrapers and the region's largest malls, Dubai seems to have realized that good things also come in small packages.
The ‘world’s smallest ambulance' can now be spotted on Dubai's roads, with the aim of being able to reach the trickiest off-road sites in and around the city, Emirates 24/7 reported on Tuesday.
The vehicle, which was unveiled last week by the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS), is fully equipped to help people who travel through rugged desert terrain.
“The new Desert Responder is designed to reach where no ordinary ambulance or first responder can reach,” DCAS spokesperson said.
“It is the safest UTV based off-road ambulance on the market and has been extensively tested by an independent testing facility (Transportation Research Center) in fully loaded conditions,” he added.
The Desert Responder has an all-aluminum patient compartment, a special lighting system, as well as a generator.
