Dubai Civil Defence to use Drone Dubai turns to drones for safety
Dubai Civil Defence has bought 15 “quad-copters” – remote-controlled drones that will be used to patrol high-risk areas, such as industrial zones, to monitor and record fires. In the event of a blaze, the drones, operated from Civil Defence stations, will be used to fly around a building on fire to help determine how best to handle the situation before firefighters arrive at the scene, reducing their risk.
Reduced number of major incidents
The 24x7 Command Control Center has captured more than 4295 real life safety alarms since the time of its inception. The Command Control Center has played a vital role in capturing and preventing fire and life safety incidents in Dubai. Statistics show steady reduction in serious incidents in Dubai owing to faster response and timely maintenance of life and safety systems. Since August 2008 until 31st of March 2014, there have been 42,519 assets subscribed for Direct Alarm System.
