Dubai's First Sustainable Floating Fire Station
Dubai Civil Defence has unveiled a game-changer: the world's first sustainable mobile floating fire station.
This innovative station is designed to keep both people and the planet safe.
Forget bulky buildings on land. This mobile fire station floats right where it is needed, saving a whopping 70% on costs and leaving a smaller footprint on the environment. Plus, it is packed with energy-saving features and uses renewable resources whenever possible.
Imagine a fireboat that can zip across the water at 11 miles per hour! That is exactly what this station does, aiming to reach emergencies within just four minutes. Talk about fast response times! And thanks to smart technology, it helps keep Dubai's waterways even safer.
With space for up to 16 firefighters, this floating station is ready for any challenge. It is a major boost for Dubai's commitment to safety, as Lieutenant General Expert Rashid Thani Al Matroushi, director general of Dubai Civil Defence, explains:
"This station is a huge leap forward in making Dubai a global leader in safety. It shows our dedication to creating innovative solutions, improving infrastructure, and saving lives. With a target response time of just four minutes, this is a major upgrade for our firefighting capabilities."
