Bairaq Qatar Voluntary Rescue team launched to offer free rescue services for residents in Qatar
The Ministry of Environment has urged public to use the services of the Bairaq Qatar Voluntary Rescue team. The team was formed in 2013 as a response to the call from young Qataris to support and help the people.
The team currently comprises 70 volunteers who offer voluntary assistance and rescue services in case of any emergency at the sea or desert or from any part of the country.
The membership is open for citizens as well as for expatriates who are interested in offering voluntary services for the public, and there are no requirements for joining the team, said a member of the Bairaq Qatar team – Mr. Nasser Al Kaabi. Volunteers joining the team will be provided the necessary training on rescue operation as well as on equipment for towing other vehicles especially those stuck in the deserts or beaches. Even those who don’t own vehicles can join the team and they will be considered for any other services according to the situation of the call received by the team, added Al Kaabi.
Public can avail of this free service by calling 50188807.
