SPSA highlights benefits of Aman System in enhancing emergency response times

Image 01The Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority (SPSA) held a conference at the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry on 25 April to discuss how to improve the safety systems of existing and future emirate buildings on the basis of the objectives set out in the UAE Vision

SPSA has affirmed its continued commitment to provide the real estate segment of the emirates with the necessary tools to ensure the safety of its citizens, residents and property through its new Aman System, which is expected to help pave the way for improved fire prevention, safety and security measures.

The introduction and implementation of the new Aman System is both timely and strategic as the UAE has been given top rankings in the global security and trust index of 96.1 per cent, reflecting the improved preparedness of the country and enhanced emergency and fire response times based on set international standards and in line with UAE Vision 2021.

Qais Mahmoud, SPSA’s Aman project manager, expressed his commitment to supporting the Aman system, particularly in moving towards enhancing preventive safety measures, improving readiness and emergency response times, in line with the highest safety and security standards for buildings and facilities.

“The Aman System offers highly advanced features that ensure rapid-fire response in cooperation and coordination with the ‘General Directorate of Civil Defence in Sharjah and SANED’,” he said.

Abid Ali, SANED’s operations director, focused on the vital features of the Aman system, which was developed on the basis of integrated mechanisms and best practices aimed at consolidating fire prevention measures.

He explained that the system is supported by laws and legislation that will require the adoption of the Aman system as a prerequisite for renewing a commercial license and also as a prerequisite for obtaining a building completion certificate.

Ali highlighted advantages such as the flexibility of integrating the system into the building’s fire alarm panel, with the possibility of installing it in different types of buildings.

He also demonstrated the system’s ability to develop, modernise and expand in the future, including the ability to effectively connect with two central monitoring stations.
