Abu Dhabi Unveils Additional Emergency Rescue Stations Across the Emirate-1

Emergency Rescue In a significant move to enhance safety measures, Abu Dhabi has introduced multiple emergency rescue points across the emirate. These strategically located sites, established by the Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority (ADCDA), aim to bolster emergency response capabilities, particularly in accident scenarios.

Advanced Equipment for Swift Response

The ADCDA ensures that all 37 emergency sites are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and tools, providing response teams with the means to address accidents more efficiently. The distribution includes 16 points in Abu Dhabi, 14 in Al Ain, and seven in the Al Dhafra region. These sites serve as bases for police, ambulance, and car-recovery response teams.

Commitment to Safety Enhancement: Emergency Rescue 

Brig Salem Abdullah Al Dhaheri, acting director general of ADCDA, emphasizes that the initiative is part of a broader strategy to enhance safety across the emirate. This comprehensive approach involves the training of human resources and the development of programs and operations geared towards elevating overall safety standards.

Concurrent Measures for Homeowners

Simultaneously, Abu Dhabi reinforces safety measures for homeowners, mandating the installation of smoke and fire detectors and subscription to the UAE alert system by January 1. This regulation, approved by the UAE Cabinet in 2020, applies to all existing and planned residences.

Inspections and Warnings

In the months between May and October, ADCDA conducted inspections on 10,753 residential and commercial buildings, issuing a staggering 21,271 warnings for non-compliance with fire safety requirements. This proactive approach is part of an ongoing effort to monitor and improve fire safety standards throughout Abu Dhabi.

Grace Period for Compliance: Emergency Rescue 

Building owners were granted a grace period, the duration of which was not disclosed, to rectify non-compliant elements. The Civil Defence has committed to monitoring these properties, aiming for sustained adherence to enhanced fire safety standards throughout the emirate.
