Dubai Civil Defence launches personal dashboard for all residents and visitors at Gitex 2015

The Dubai Civil Defence has announced the launch of the Personal Dashboard, which allows the emirate’s residents and visitors to connect to the Dubai Civil Defence services and import their personal data and view them on a great intuitive interface. This unique way will allow residents and visitors to visualize data and keep them informed and connected.

The Personal Dashboard, introduced by Dubai Civil Defence, empowers citizens, residents and visitors by connecting them to their needs making their daily 'city interactions' more efficient and seamless.

Launching the new initiative, Major General Expert Rashid Thani Al Matrooshi, Director General of Dubai Civil Defence, said: “Dubai’s Smart City initiatives are not merely about automation, it is about connecting people to their needs. Dubai Civil Defence cares about the safety and happiness of its citizens, residents and visitors; the Personal Dashboard will now enable real-time public engagement like never before. This is in extension to the Dubai Life Safety Dashboard, which assists Dubai Civil Defence and building owners in Dubai to monitor city/building live from a single screen.”

With personal dashboard, the Dubai Civil Defence has joined Dubai government's MyID service, to enable single sign-on for users to access their dashboard. This will give the public smooth access to the Personal Dashboard wherever they are, thereby contributing effectively to full transformation into smart government and to Dubai becoming the smartest city in the world in implementation of the initiative of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to shift to smart government.
