JEDDAH: All ambulances operating during the Hajj season have been fully equipped with first aid supplies, and medical tools and equipment have undergone the required maintenance, said Eid bin Mohammed Al-Eid, head of the medical supply department at the Saudi Red Crescent Authority (SRCA).
The department’s plan is to provide permanent and seasonal aid stations with the necessary medical supplies, and ensure that ambulances on duty during Hajj never run short, he added.
The plan also provides support to emergency medical teams, ambulance centers and volunteers, Al-Eid said.
The authority’s medical supply department will deploy a technical team to examine ambulances on duty at the holy sites, and provide them with round-the-clock supplies and maintenance of their equipment during the Hajj season, he added.
Recently, the Technical and Vocational Training Corp. and the SRCA in the Makkah region have implemented a first-aid program for 200 scouts and rovers at a camp in Jeddah to prepare them to serve pilgrims in Makkah.
The director general of the corporation in the Makkah region, Faisal Kadsah, stressed the importance of the camp in serving pilgrims.
He expressed appreciation for the efforts of the General Administration for Trainee Affairs, which supports the employment of trainees during the Hajj season.
He said the participation of the corporation is part of efforts by the public and private sectors to serve pilgrims, with the full support of the government.
The leader of the scout camp, Walid bin Khalid Filimban, said the corporation qualifies its trainees to deal professionally with all cases.
He stressed the necessity of knowing first-aid principles.

BEIJING: China’s President Xi Jinping pledged to make concerted efforts with South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in to address differences between the two countries properly, the official Xinhua news agency said on Thursday.
“Xi made the remarks in a congratulatory message sent to Moon on the 25th anniversary of the establishment of China-South Korea diplomatic relations,” Xinhua said.
Development of China-South Korea relations makes a positive contribution to regional peace and development, Xinhua cited Xi as saying. The news agency did not provide further details.
South Korea and the United States agreed to deploy the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense anti-missile system in response to the growing missile threat from North Korea.
However, the move has angered China, which says the system’s powerful radar will look deep into its territory and undermine regional security.
China has pressured South Korean businesses through boycotts and bans, such as ending Chinese group tours to South Korea and closing most of South Korean conglomerate Lotte Group’s Lotte Mart retail stores in China.
Moon has also pushed China, North Korea’s most important ally and trading partner, to do more to rein in Pyongyang’s missile and nuclear weapons programs.
North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests and dozens of missile tests since the beginning of last year, significantly raising tension on the heavily militarised Korean peninsula and in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions. Two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July resulted in a new round of tougher global sanctions.
