New round of fire drills to be carried out across 13 buildings by October 2017
Dubai, UAE: Deyaar Development PJSC, one of the UAE’s leading property development and real estate services companies, has recently reinforced its commitment to fire safety by conducting an increased number of fire drills and inspections. The drills are set to be carried out across 13 of Deyaar Owners’ Association Management (DOAM) managed buildings by October 2017, in coordination with Dubai Civil Defence.
The programme aims to bolster Deyaar’s existing efforts and improve the responsiveness of building occupants. Set to cover 327 inspections by year end, the inspections will be conducted by Deyaar and Al Futtaim Willis’ specialised team of fire risk engineers. The multi-phased rollout will consist of a clear fire plan for each tower including full system ISO audits, periodic audits, and monthly and quarterly risk-focused inspections that cover all building assets and systems.
“At Deyaar we believe that fire safety is a collective responsibility through which state-of-the-art materials and processes are mobilised and maintained to prevent the threat of major fires, and ensure the safety of residents at all times,” says Kanagaraj Gurusamy, Sr. Community Manager, DOAM. “Our team is now following the new Fire and Life Code introduced by the Dubai Civil Defence and looking at integrating all new measures into the initial building development phase to make sure our buildings are safe and durable.”
In 2016, Deyaar completed five mock fire drills at The Burlington, 51 @ Business Bay, The Citadel, Oxford Tower, and The Metropolis.
