ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates-Monday 11 July 2016 [ AETOS Wire ]

The Civil Defense General Directorate at the Ministry of Interior (MoI) has confirmed that no major fires occurred during the Holy Month of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr. It also explained that the demands put on the teams to respond to incidents were minimal.

Major General Jassem Muhammad Al Marzouqui, Civil Defense General Commander-in-Chief, said: “The reasons such accidents don’t happen is because of the efforts made to raise public awareness; advising people on public safety guidelines and adhering to the requirements, standards, specifications and designs that were developed to prevent fires inside Ramadan tents and public gathering places. This is in addition to making sure that there was compliance with all safe usage conditions for public and private amenities.”

He also confirmed that awareness-raising campaigns are ongoing, as is their readiness to deal with any accident, thereby saving lives and properties. Concluding, he emphasized: “The coordination between the relevant departments in dealing with disasters works according to an integrated doctrine, which is in line with the Civil Defense plan and overall strategy.”
