Being a beachside city with plenty of areas surrounded by water – Dubai Marina, Dubai Creek, The Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Canal… it’s easy to see how sometimes it can be easier to get around by water than by road.

Dubai Civil Defence are utilising all the best ways to get around, and they’ve just launched ‘Dolphin’, which Dubai Media Office describes as “an innovative early response firefighting service utilizing water jetpacks.”

As you’d expect from anything that contains the word “jetpack”, it’s seriously cool. Check out the video below.

This comes after news that Dubai may introduce floating firestations. Lt Col Ali Al Mutawa, head of operations at Dubai Civil Defence, said that it would allow them to cover certain areas in Dubai.
