bu Dhabi Police have introduced ten new motorbike ambulances to be used as part of the forces’ fleet of first responder patrol vehicles.
The motorbike ambulances are specially designed for desert. These ambulance bikes are called “Spiders” which were launched at the Armed Forces Officers Club in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
These bikes can enter crowded and narrow streets where other ambulance vehicles find hard to access.

Major-General Mohammad Khalfan Al Rumaithi, Commander-in-Chief of Abu Dhabi Police, said the off-road motorbikes are equipped with the latest medical equipment and innovative solutions, including hydraulic technology (cutters), fire extinguishers and an automated external defibrillator that will help emergency personnel respond more efficiently to accidents and ensure the safety of victims. Nowadays, ambulances have to be equipped with lots of different forms of technology to ensure care for all patients.
