The seized cylinders were found in some restaurants, cafeterias, shops and trucks of gas-filling companies, commercial and residential buildings during the last six months.
"They are just like time bombs that endanger peoples' lives and have so far caused many fire accidents,” Major Jasim Hassan Al Kharaze, Head of the Protection and Safety Section (PSS) of CDD, told Khaleej Times. “Some of the seized containers were very old and lacked all the required safety systems,” he said.
The expiry date of any gas cylinder is 15 years from the date of production, provided that it is maintained regularly.
"The department conducts regular campaigns to detect and eradicate all forms of problems that might trigger fire accidents or other catastrophes," he said, adding, "These campaigns are a part of our new strategy that aims at preventing accidents before they occur, which has so far proved to be time-saving and cost-effective.”
"We will take stringent action against all sorts of violations that might endanger public safety and lives,” he said. "The department, in cooperation with a professional company, has destroyed all the seized containers under strict safety measures so as to ensure the well-being and safety of our personnel as well as the people who are living in the neighbouring areas,” Al Kharaze added.
He also called upon the public to refrain from using any old cylinder.
