Sharjah, 02 April 2019: The Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority launched yesterday (April 01,2019) the new Aman system to enhance the emirate’s fire prevention capabilities and implement the best industry practices to build a safe and risk-free society. The initiative is in response to the directive of H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, to protect individuals and properties throughout the emirate.
To be managed by Saned, Aman is an advanced fire detection system that can be installed in commercial and residential buildings. Furthermore, enhanced and globally recognized firefighting procedures have been put in place in support of the newly launched initiative. The innovative fire detection system allows 24-hour monitoring of fire alarms, boosting the capability of Sharjah’s General Directorate of Civil Defense to immediately respond to fire incidents. The system, which can easily be integrated into a fire alarm panel of any building, connects effectively to two central monitoring stations through mobile data and public switched telephone network (PSTN).
The Authority already installed the system into its facility in Muwaileh, a commercial complex, and the building of Souq Al Jubail in Al Jubail during the first phase of implementation. A number of tests were carried out to ensure the system's efficiency and detect malfunctions and possible errors.
His Excellency Eng. Sheikh Khalid Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Chairman, Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority, said, “The Aman system demonstrates the Authority’s commitment towards maintaining public safety in Sharjah. The new initiative is being launched in response to the directive of H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi to strengthen government coordination to ensure public safety and security in all buildings and developments.”
Prior to the installation of Aman, building owners will be required to submit an annual maintenance contract in relation to their fire alarm system and a compliance certificate. The fire alarm contractor assigned to each building is also required at the site when the Aman technical team conducts the installation. Building owners can request for the installation via www.eservices.spsa.ae. They will be required to provide their name, address, and location.
