UAE to get a centralized automated fire alarm

A centralised fire-alarm receiving centre that connects all UAE buildings,will be soon be introduced in the country. UAE Ministry of Interior, in partnership with Injazat Data Systems, unveiled Hassantuk, the UAE’s smart monitoring, alert and control system. It will connect buildings and facilities across the country to an automated alarm-receiving centre that can request the immediate dispatch of emergency response from Civil Defence for fire and other life-threatening incidents. The new system is the largest automated, integrated fire and life-safety monitoring system of its kind in the region and it supports UAE Vision 2021’s goal of making the UAE one of the safest countries in the world.

The system picks up on smoke or any glitch in the fire safety system in buildings and alerts the civil defence’s nearest unit to deploy firefighters. After installing the system in buildings, it will be rolled out to all houses. It identifies the specific type of emergency and its exact location as well as provides intelligence for the building. These features enable the Civil Defence to dispatch the right personnel and equipment to the right place.The first buildings will be connected to Hassantuk by the first quarter of 2018.
