The Saudi Red Crescent Authority (SRCA) in Madinah unveiled its operational plan for the Hajj season of 1445H, covering the entire region in accordance with approved guidelines.

According to SRCA Madinah branch Director General Dr. Ahmed bin Ali Al-Zahrani, the plan aims to provide emergency medical and ambulance services to the Prophet's Mosque visitors and the roads leading to Madinah. This will continue until the 15th of Muharram 1446H.

The plan is being implemented by 45 regional ambulance centers, comprising 71 fully equipped and advanced ambulance teams supported by the latest vehicles in the region and full readiness for air ambulance services.

Over 690 employees from various classifications and positions will be involved in carrying out the plan.

This year, the operational force at the Prophet's Mosque and the surrounding courtyards will be increased in proportion to the number of worshippers as needed.

Additionally, approximately 500 male and female volunteers will work in the Prophet's Mosque, providing ambulance coverage in all its sections and courtyards around the clock, equipped with the necessary training courses before the start of the Hajj season.

Furthermore, the plan includes a command-and-control center in the region with ambulance and medical guidance services. Reports can be submitted by calling 997 or through the ASEFNE application, which contains 9 languages.

The report is then passed on to the ambulance teams closest to the case through the electronic paramedic program.

The case is immediately handled, assessed, and treated, and the nearest hospital is contacted.

The health facility is provided with the complete ambulance report electronically, and all the details of the report are followed up through the electronic field commander program, and instructions are issued to all field workers through the program as quickly as possible.
