Dubai Municipality Warehouse holds fire drill
Dubai Municipality recently conducted an evacuation drill at its Al Ramool Warehouse. The Emergency Team of the Warehouse Section in the Contracts and Purchasing Department of Dubai Municipality organized the exercise in cooperation with Dubai Civil Defence Department, Dubai Police and Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services.
The drill held at 9am was executed by creating a mock fire in the administrative building. As per the Civil Defence analysis, the drill achieved 95% success as all employees were evacuated within two minutes. People with special needs were also moved to the assembly point safely without causing any difficulty to them.
The evacuation scenario was created with the aim of enhancing the preparedness of all organizations concerned and reducing injuries and casualties in the event of such incidents.
It was also meant to identify any future or developmental needs of these organizations and to determine the strengths and weaknesses during the execution of the evacuation process as well as to fill the gaps and shortcomings so that everyone can be prepared in the event of an accident similar to the scenario executed during the drill.
