HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, commended the initiative of Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Service, which helps save heart patients in critical condition. Al Tayer expressed his appreciation to the corporation for presenting the defibrillator device, emphasising DEWA's commitment to providing a healthy and safe environment for all employees and customers.
