Risks to bystanders

According to a statement released by Abu Dhabi Police on social media, crowding to witness emergency responses after a traffic accident, or during a fire or any other emergency, can hinder first-responder operations – including those of paramedics, police, civil defence and rescue vehicles – by obstructing access to the site. Bystanders can also face risks to their own safety or end up distracting medical and civil defence teams.
