New jetski equipment will help safeguard the city's waterfront projects from fire, says official
Dubai Civil Defence (DCD) has unveiled Dolphin, a jetski it will use to fight fires in the city.
The jetski, revealed at Intersec 2017, will help firefighters to cut the time required to put out fires, especially when road traffic is heavy, according to DCD director general Maj Gen Expert Rashid Thani Al Matrooshi.
Al Matrooshi said the jetski is one of DCD's maritime-oriented strategies to combat fires.
DCD said it has also adopted the Floating Firefighting Station concept, which Al Matrooshi said would help safeguard the city's waterfront projects in addition to reducing the time required to extinguish fires.
The Dolphin jetski and Floating Firefighting Station were unveiled at Intersec 2017, where Al Matrooshi and his colleagues also announced the UAE's updated fire and life safety code.
