I discovered recently in Manila, the Philippines, that Uber has made a very creative partnership with a private ambulance service. It is a good idea…….How about in your town? – Dennis Smith

At Uber, we are committed to rider and driver safety in every ride.

Today, we are proud to announce a first-of-its-kind partnership with Lifeline Rescue providing FREE*, premium-quality ambulance service for riders and driver partners in the rare event that you encounter a medical emergency while on an Uber ride.

Lifeline Rescue is the only dedicated Emergency Quick Response service in the Philippines equipped with US-certified life-saving medical equipment and a staff trained to comply with rigorous international standards.

Since 1995, Lifeline Rescue has been instrumental in saving over 86,000 lives. In 2013 alone, it helped save the lives of 9,865 people.

In the rare event of an emergency during an Uber ride, you will be able to contact Lifeline Rescue and receive FREE emergency medical response service**.
1. Contact Lifeline Rescue via 24/7 Hotline (16-911) or smartphone app ( iOS and Android).
2. Provide your location.
