Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum,Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Ministry of Interior has upgraded its smart services list to allow applications to install fire alarm systems in residences and link them with the Civil Defence's operations rooms.

Applications for the service can now be made through the ministry's website, www.moi.gov.ae. Once an application is submitted, the applicant will be contacted by the suppliers of the system for installation.

Under the directives of Lt. General Shaikh Saif Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, the ministry started linking homes and villas with its operations rooms, following the technical solution provided by the higher committee tasked with the project.

The system is a self-operated and easily installed smoke detection sensor, with a voice alarm for the quick evacuation of residents.

This comes after a deadly house fire that killed seven children in Rol Dhadna district on Monday.

Police said the fire was reported after it had become too late.
