Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS) awards RMSI the first Air Ambulance license in Dubai




November, 2012

RMSI is the first licensed air ambulance operator in Dubai as awarded by the Dubai Ambulance Authority


RMSI, a reputable Dubai-based international medical solutions company,

specializes in providing routine and rapid response medical treatment, and medical evacuations from high-risk environments. RMSI provides a truly integrated medical solution; including remote on-site medical staffing and clinical facilities, topside medical support through the Dubai based 24-hour Mission Response Center, and both ground and air ambulance services.


Having operated in Dubai since 2008, RMSI has continually strived to bring medical excellence to all its operations both in the UAE and the many countries where RMSI operates. The decision to set operations in Dubai was an easy one for RMSI founder and CEO Rob Lamb:


“Geographically Dubai is the center of the world, and from both a logistical and commercial aspect the only place I would consider anchoring RMSI’s operations. Being based in Dubai allows for quick, efficient and smooth deployment of RMSI’s air ambulances to our clients across the region, with world class medical care in Dubai enabling us to bring patients here for emergency treatment. The healthy business environment in the city, coupled with innovative vision of its leaders makes it an attractive place to call home.”


Being awarded the first Air Ambulance license in Dubai by the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services is a testament to RMSI’s work and a proud moment for the RMSI team. Giane Atallah RMSI Government Liaison Officer commented on the new liscense:


“We have worked closely with DCAS, taking guidance from them with regards to best practices in service delivery. Their decision to create a new license category for air ambulances is fantastic news and we at RMSI are honored to be awarded the first one. We look forward to our continued work with the DCAS, taking a collaborative approach to ensuring the highest standards are in place and continually updated in this very specialized field of medicine.”


RMSI’s high-speed Intensive Care jets are deployed within minutes of receiving flight clearance, providing 24 hour assistance to RMSI clients requiring international medical evacuation services. RMSI’s real-time operations systems provide up to the minute status reports. Every stage of the journey is monitored with high tech satellite tracking, and communication is maintained between the air ambulance and the RMSI Mission Response Center based in Dubai.


Each aircraft is fully equipped with the latest technology and medical equipment. On receiving the emergency alert, a medical team is underway with the right training and equipment geared for any situation. Highly trained and skilled, RMSI pilots hold a wealth of experience in flying into any area.


The RMSI fleet of high-speed Intensive Care jets provide assistance to both civilian and military clients in addition
to the United Nations, NATO, NGOs and corporate organizations with
global operations.


RMSI clients such as the UN, NATO and numerous Oil and Gas majors benefit from a range of services including a 24/7 Mission Response Center, Medical Consultancy and Training, Remote Field Clinics, Primary Emergency Retrieval, Field Hospitals and Air Ambulances.
