Abu Dhabi: A Civil Defence team specialising in studying and setting up engineering plans for fire prevention and safety represented the UAE in Eurocon 2012 for fire protection and safety held in Amsterdam.

According to Colonel Mohammad Bin Naseeb Al Nuaimi, Director-General of Abu Dhabi Civil Defence, a number of the department’s new recruits are sent to international conferences as part of the strategic plan of the Civil Defence General Headquarters in Abu Dhabi to qualify its employees as per global standards.

Al Nuaimi said participating in such conferences enriched the experience exchange and built contacts.

It also demonstrates how much progress has been made in preventative measures set by the Civil Defence in the past years due to technological benefits and the skills which the participating teams gain during the visits.
