Dubai all set to hail Eid Al Fitr

(WAM) / 25 August 2011

Dubai Municipality has completed all its arrangements to welcome Eid Al Fitr as the civic body has drawn a detailed plan to provide the best services to the public during the Eid holidays.

The Eid Musallahs and public areas are cleaned up and many entertainment activities have been lined up in the public parks. Stringent food control measures have been in place to ensure food safety as also the efforts to monitor sale of hazardous fire crackers in the emirate.

Ahmed AbdulKarim, Director of Public Parks and Horticulture Department said the department has prepared a good line up of entertainment programmes to attract visitors to the public parks during the Eid holidays. There are six large parks and 76 residential parks across the emirate of Dubai introduced by Municipality.

The General Maintenance Department has also made a lot of preparations for the smooth conduct of Eid festivities.

Juma Al Fuqae, Director of General Maintenance Department said the department always tries to provide the best services. “We have renovated and developed a number of swimming pools in different parks as a good number of visitors are expected to these pools during Eid holidays. We have given special care to the safety and hygiene aspects. We have also intensified maintenance of toilets in the public parks,” he said.

A number of these technical employees have been put into emergency duty to take care of any unexpected occurrences. The Department in coordination with the Civil Defence Department is also keeping alert to face any fire accidents.

The Food Control Department has also drawn a comprehensive plan to meet the requirements of the Eid Al Fitr holidays as it has intensified its inspections in the foodstuff establishments in the emirate. Keeping in view of the large quantity of foodstuff that come for sale in the market, the food inspectors are not leaving anything for chance by keeping a vigil on the restaurants and cafeterias in the city. The foodstuff that can easily get contaminated is put under strict check.

Khalid Sharif Al Awadhi, Director of Food Control Department said the department’s inspectors have been concentrating more on the areas where increased activities are witnessed during the Eid holidays. Traditional kitchens are also coming under constant check these days.

He also advised the public to check the ingredients of the food items they buy these days.

Ali Taher Al Hammadi, Acting Head of Dubai Abattoirs Section said that as usual the department has ensured and organized a hygienic activity in the abattoirs during the Eid holidays. He said that a strict check is done at every stage of the preparation of meat items.
