Aman system will help enhance the emirate's fire prevention capabilities and implement the best industry practices to build a safe and risk-free society.

All buildings in Sharjah will be linked to Aman - the advanced fire-detection system - by mid-2020, according to a top official in the emirate.

Sheikh Khalid bin Saqr Al Qasimi, chairman of the Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority (SPSA), said the Aman system will help enhance the emirate's fire prevention capabilities and implement the best industry practices to build a safe and risk-free society.

"Aman is an advanced fire detection system that can be installed in commercial and residential buildings. The system allows 24-hour monitoring of fire alarms, boosting the capability of Sharjah's General Directorate of Civil Defence to immediately respond to fire incidents. The system can easily be integrated into fire alarm panels of any building and it connects effectively to two central monitoring stations through mobile data and telephone networks. Many buildings in the emirate have already been linked to Aman and works are in progress to link all establishments by mid-2020," he said.

Meanwhile, the SPSA visited 4,132 buildings to educate the management about safety measures and instructed them to rectify any errors. It also provided awareness to community members in residential areas - housewives, domestic helpers and workers - on how to ensure safety and prevent hazardous incidents. A total of 1,674 people have attended the SPSA training to learn how to comply with occupational health and safety standards.
