Who We Are

National Ambulance (NA) was established in 2010 to provide quality pre-hospital emergency medical services for the people of the United Arab Emirates in line with the nation’s healthcare objectives. Serving and working with both the government and private sectors, National Ambulance delivers quality emergency care consistent with international standards by utilising modern technology and evidence-based practices to meet its core objectives of saving lives and serving communities.

Supported by fully integrated Ambulance Communications Centres and utilising an advanced fleet of vehicles, National Ambulance provides public and private emergency medical services (EMS) to patients in the UAE. National Ambulance directly serves the public in the Northern Emirates through the dedicated 998 emergency ambulance number and plays a key role in the UAE’s vital frontline emergency response, working in close coordination with emergency service partners under the umbrella of the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Health and Prevention.

National Ambulance is also a key partner in national emergency response to mass casualty disasters and crisis working with other emergency service providers across the country to protect the public under the lead of the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA). As part of this National Ambulance is a lead member of the NCEMA Federal Response Committee, and a member of the Northern Emirates’ Higher NCEMA Committee and the Executive NCEMA Committee.

National Ambulance’s specialised teams provide different levels of emergency pre-hospital care through contracted or stand-alone services for a wide range of emergency-related requirements from basic to advanced emergency medical services (EMS), emergency medical coverage at private and public events, non-emergency patient transport, helicopter emergency medical services and ongoing onsite medical support.
