Abu Dhabi: Fire Safety Fine Reminder

Khaleej Times, 25 July 2023: The Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority has issued an advisory notice reminding residents and property owners of fire safety requirements.

There are stringent rules in Abu Dhabi on fire safety which include ensuring that detectors and firefighting systems are always in good condition. The authority has stated that along with installing these devices residents and property owners need to ensure they have a maintainance contract in place for this equipment.

A fine of 10,000 AED is imposed where there is no valid maintenance contract by a contractor approved by the Civil Defence Authority for fire alarm systems and devices, fire fighting systems and equipment. These requirements are specified in Cabinet Decision No. 24/2012 On Regulation of Civil Defence Services in the State.
