Abu Dhabi Police urged families to reinforce the preventive measures to protect children from falling off buildings or residential apartments and monitor children as they approach windows.
This is part of Abu Dhabi Police’s "Safety” campaign.
Abu Dhabi Police called real estate institutions that supervise residential buildings to pay attention on increasing the fencing and window barriers.
The police learned that some buildings have insufficient fencing to protect children.
This safety campaign came up after a spate of falling incidents happened in the recent months.
The police warned the danger of leaving furniture adjacent to windows to avoid being used by children to step on it out of curiosity to look outside the windows.
The police explained that with the onset of winter people are opening their windows to enjoy the pleasant weather. This leads to the child’s curiosity to know what is on other side. The police stressed the need to establish controls for the use of balconies not only for young people but also for adults as well.
The police urged parents to shut all windows for the safety of children, especially when they are left alone at home.
The police have called for the necessity of installing metal bars on the windows, which will protect children from falling, and also urged to that the mechanism should be simple so in case of a fire, it can be opened for escaping.
