Al-Futtaim, Dubai Civil Defence ink MoU
Dubai, April 15, 2012
Al Futtaim Motors, the sole Toyota dealer in the UAE, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Dubai Civil Defence (DCD) towards conducting joint training programmes, awareness campaigns and exchange of information.
This follows from a recent agreement that saw Al-Futtaim Motors supply the Dubai Civil Defence with a new fleet of 12 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
Alan Carpenter, general manager-Fleet Al-Futtaim Motors, said: “This is indeed a strategic partnership. The civil defence department has been providing noble services for the emirate and we are extremely honoured to be part of this relationship. We thank them for showing confidence in Al-Futtaim Motors.”
This new fleet of Land Cruiser Prado will help provide dependable mobility for search and rescue missions by Dubai Civil Defense.
“This MoU will further the relationship and help enhance DCD’s programmes in spreading awareness on emergency prevention. Land Cruiser Prado is reputed for its quality, durability and reliability. Those characteristics are key to an organisation that relies on dependable mobility to carry out rescue missions,” he added.
Prado comes with the Crawl Control function providing assistance in handling challenging terrains and extreme situations.
The car is also mounted with the world’s first Multi-terrain Monitor. On-board cameras located on four sides of the vehicle – front, rear and both sides – provide the driver with a clear view of ground conditions surrounding the vehicle.
While this function is particularly useful in off-road situations, it is also easily applicable to on-road driving, cancelling out blind spots and assisting with parking visibility. – TradeArabia News Service
