The 'Dolphin' jetski will reduce the amount of time taken to extinguish fires, and was launched alongside the agency's Floating Firefighting Station at Intersec 2017

Dubai Civil Defence (DCD) unveiled Dolphin, a jetski it will use to fight fires, at Intersec 2017. 

The jetski, according to DCD director general HE Maj Gen Expert Rashid Thani Al Matrooshi, will help the agency cut the time required to put out fires, especially when road traffic is heavy. 

Al Matrooshi said the jetski is one of DCD's maritime-oriented strategies to combat fires. 

As part of the initiative, DCD has also adopted the Floating Firefighting Station concept, which Al MAtrooshi said would help safeguard the city's waterfront projects in addition to reducing the time required to extinguish fires.

The Dolphin jetski and Floating Firefighting Station were unveiled at Intersec 2017, where Al Matrooshi and his colleagues unveiled the UAE's updated fire and life safety code.
