The Sharjah Police and Civil Defence department will join hands to take steps and launch plans to prevent incidents that pose risks to children and threaten their lives. During a recent meeting, the authorities discussed dangers of leaving kids in cars and school buses during the hot weather, or letting them take the elevators alone.
They pointed out that negligence of parents was a cause for concern.  
Dr Brig Khalifa Kalender, director of Sharjah police stations, said the measures will be strengthened to ensure safety of kids and programmes will spread awareness among the members of the society to follow the rules. The initiatives will introduce security measures to prevent accidents involving kids locked in cars, or left unattended in swimming pools, homes (mostly high-rise buildings) and tourist resorts. Lack of awareness and negligence of parents is the main reason behind accidents that claim children's lives, he added.
Dubai Police also issued a warning video on social media - addressing the issue of children getting locked in cars. The police said that they rescue 100 children from locked cars every year.

Speaking to Khaleej Times, Col Sami Al Naqbi, Director of Sharjah Civil Defence, stressed on the need to comply with the prescribed standards in residential buildings and adhere to rules. Vehicles that carry children from schools to their homes should guarantee safety and take steps to make the commute completely safe and secure, he underlined.
He added there have been many incidents where parents left their children inside cars or the kids were forgotten in school buses by supervisors, which resulted in their deaths. In some cases, parents let their children go alone in elevators, which locked on them. "All these incidents were caused due to negligence and lack of awareness of safety and prevention measures," he added.
Al Naqbi said preventing such incidents requires the joint efforts of public administration and government institutions. "The responsibility of children's safety is primarily on the parents, who should not leave their children alone in the building, swimming pools, elevators and escalators or lock them in cars while going for shopping. Al Naqbi said that the spike in these cases and loss of children's lives reflect the parents' negligence.
Workshops and awareness lectures will be held for parents, supervisors and school bus drivers to make the safety of children a top priority, he added.
