The honoring came under the directives of Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police.

Ahmed Rafi praised the good and quick action of Noukhada Issa Al Falasi, who was able to rescue eight fishermen, pointing out that people's lives are very important and the speed of action, intervention and rapid response by Issa had a great impact in rescuing the fishermen at a critical and important time.
For his part, Noukhada Al Falasi thanked the Dubai Police for honoring him, stressing that what he did was a humanitarian duty stemming from his role as a UAE citizen.
It was said that Noukhada Al Falasi while he was on a fishing trip, noticed a person at a distance carried by the waves of the sea, so he rushed immediately towards him.
He was surprised after rescuing and providing him with the first aid that there were nine others, who were on board the boat before it capsized and needed help. He found them and was able to rescue eight people 'all fishermen', but failed to rescue two others who had died before reaching them.
