Deyaar Development will be conducting an increased number of fire drills and inspections across its properties in the UAE, reinforcing its commitment to fire safety in the country.

The inspections will be conducted across 13 of Deyaar Owners’ Association Management (DOAM) managed buildings by October 2017, in coordination with Dubai Civil Defence.

Set to cover 327 inspections by the end of the year, the inspections will be conducted by Deyaar and Al Futtaim Willis’ specialised team of fire risk engineers.

The multi-phased rollout will consist of a clear fire plan for each tower including full system ISO audits, periodic audits, and monthly and quarterly risk-focused inspections that cover all building assets and systems.

Kanagaraj Gurusamy, senior community manager, DOAM, said: “Our team is now following the new Fire and Life Code introduced by the Dubai Civil Defence and looking at integrating all new measures into the initial building development phase to make sure our buildings are safe and durable.”

The programme aims to bolster Deyaar’s existing efforts and improve the responsiveness of building occupants.

Deyaar completed five mock fire drills in 2016 at several of its Dubai-based developments including The Burlington, 51 @ Business Bay, The Citadel, Oxford Tower, and The Metropolis.
