First Gulf Properties (FGP), a real estate service provider specialising in end-to-end property solutions, recently partnered with the General Directorate of Civil Defence – Abu Dhabi (ADCD) to launch an educational awareness campaign on fire safety. The campaign included several lectures that targeted employees from the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC). These lectures outlined procedures for fire prevention and safety in both residential and work places.

FGP and ADCD aim to spread awareness and methods of protecting the community by introducing safety procedures among FGP tenants, whether individual, corporate or government. Tenants and employees should be informed about the importance of having a safety plan at home, and there should always be an evacuation route. This initiative confirms FGP’s commitment to enhance safety and security standards within the UAE and its community, and to spread more knowledge on fire safety.

Mr. Ahmed Mohammed Zouaydi, Lecturer and Safety Trainer at ADCD, delivered a lecture which covered different types of fire, their causes and ways to prevent them at home and the workplace. Participants also reviewed the various ways to evacuate and protect themselves and others in case of uncontrollable fire incidents. According to the most recent statistics by the Civil Defence, domestic fires are the highest in buildings and establishments.

ADCD is continuously developing plans to ensure safety and a speedy response to fire accidents. However, it is also important to educate the community about fire precaution. The ongoing partnership between FGP and ADCD is one of the best ways to spread awareness among tenants and employees.

FGP and ADCD had previously collaborated to tackle the issue of fire safety by engaging FGP tenants across the UAE through fire safety programmes. In fact, FGP manages 14,000 commercial and residential units thus allowing it to have greater opportunity to spread the message to a larger audience. FGP continues to carry out fire and evacuation training sessions to ensure safety for the community throughout this ongoing awareness campaign.
