Dubai’s life safety system wins laurels from across the world
02 January, 2016
The 2016 E-Government Development Index (EGDI), issued by the UN Department of Economics and Social Affairs, ranks the UAE eighth globally in providing e-services. The Dubai Civil Defence (DCD) authority plays a key role in efforts to build strong infrastructure that is capable of managing risks and responding to different emergency situations immediately. Dubai is the first city in the Middle East where all its buildings are electronically monitored with the most technologically advanced national life safety system. Safety and fire prevention is thereby achieved comprehensively in all types of assets including industrial, commercial and residential buildings, tourist venues and public departments.
