16 Jan Abu Dhabi Police raise awareness of smart fire alarm
The Abu Dhabi Police’s safety campaign is raising awareness of the importance of smart fire alarm systems.
The Hassantuk solution was launched in 2018 by the UAE Civil Defence, to monitor and detect fire and smoke from commercial and residential buildings.
Already thousands of homes in Abu Dhabi have had the smart fire alarm system installed under the social security scheme in the UAE. Homes registered under the scheme also had wireless detectors for heat, fire, smoke, gas and carbon monoxide fitted, as well as internal and external sound alarm devices.
Captain Khaled Ibrahim Al Marzouqi, from the Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority, said during a radio broadcast: “The Hassantuk system was designed to ensure the round-the-clock security and safety of individuals and property, including unmanned or vacant villas.
“The system aims to enforce a proactive detection of any fire-related or maintenance of system itself in every home across the UAE, thus reducing the impact of any emergency and creating safer communities.”
Major Engineer Youssef Saif Al Kaabi from Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority added: “Providing a safe system for the requirements of prevention and safety in buildings requires the provision of basic and various requirements, the most important of which is to apply for the issuance of a facility or building licence through the Federal Prevention and Safety Measures Program and to provide all documents stipulated in the laws and regulations, and then the Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority accredits the company specialized in field work.”
The Hassantuk solution optimises the UAE’s response to fire and emergency alerts via a 24/7 connected fire alarm system that uses advanced artificial intelligence smart tech to monitor and report incidents.
