Fire Drill – Staff Training
In partnership with the Dubai Civil Defence, Dubai Police and Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services, we successfully completed a fire drill.
On September 29, 2016, in the morning, we tested our emergency preparedness. All the staff, visitors and outpatients were involved. In order not to disturb our inpatients, we allowed them to stay in their rooms with the nurses. All the inpatients were informed in advance.
Everybody escaped successfully, except one staff person left inside, following the scenario. The evacuation speed we managed to show is good enough, but we’re going to continue carrying out such trainings anyway. It is very important for us to be 100% sure that in our hospital patients are always safe.
Special thanks to the government agencies for supervising the event and for their readiness to take part in such activities and to advise us how to improve.
