In preparation for the Hajj Season of 2018, the Saudi Red Crescent Authority recruited more than 2,631 personnel amongst doctors, specialists, administrators, and technicians in the Makkah Madinah. 69 Ambulance centers were created to accommodate the urgent health cases, along with 300 ambulances, 15 advanced response teams, and 27 medic motorcycles. 10 further emergency centers were established around major areas, including both airports, nearby sea ports, and all roads leading to Makkah and Madinah.

The President of the Authority, Dr. Mohammed Abdullah Al-Qassim, committed his effort in an early stage to execute the perfect plan, routes in case of an emergency, and to cover any health or medical need that may arise during the Season.
