Dubai's Jebel Ali Port fire: Citizens, expats praise frontline heroes
The Dubai Media Office said the fire was put out within 40 minutes.
Praise has been pouring in from all quarters of the UAE for the heroes of Dubai’s civil defence team for extinguishing a fire that broke out onboard a ship at Jebel Ali Port late on Wednesday in a short span of time.
Nasser Al Shaikh, a well-known Emirati, praised the administrative, security and media teams for their outstanding joint work to handle the situation.
He suggested that the local landmarks should be lit up to honour and appreciate the great efforts of the frontline heroes.
“I hope that the landmarks of Dubai will light up today with expressions of thanks, praise and appreciation to the civil defense heroes who demonstrated to us yesterday how distinguished they are… Our heroes have a right over us, and may God guide them and protect them under His care. Thanks also to the administrative, security and media teams for their outstanding work,” Al Shaikh said.
