All-female rescue teams to patrol Dubai’s beaches

12 lifeguards are currently in training and more are expected

Around Town

We love our beaches here in Dubai, and it looks like they’re about to get even better.

Dubai police have announced that they are currently in the process of assembling all female rescue teams to make the beaches even safer.

The teams will be tasked with patrolling Dubai’s beaches, making sure we’re well looked after when we go for a paddle.

The plans were announced during a joint press conference with Dubai Municipality where it was explained that the beach safety campaign will run over the course of two months.

It has been reported that 12 women are currently undergoing emergency response training and this number is expected to rise to 18 by the end of the year.

It was also revealed during the conference that 300 people have been rescued from the water since the beginning of the year, which highlights how important the new lifeguards will be.

If you’re more of a pool-goer than a beach dweller, you might be interested in this deal from La Ville Hotel & Suites.

The hotel’s new night pool Dip in the Dark offer includes access from 5pm until 10pm every evening to the boutique hotel’s rooftop infinity pool which overlooks the glistening skyline.

The pool is open every evening until Sunday September 30 and once you’ve worn yourself out with a bit of doggy paddle, you’ll be able to refuel with some tasty bites at La Ville’s urban rooftop bar, LookUp.
