The Sharjah civil defence teams successfully managed to put out a fire in Al Bandary Twin Towers in Sharjah.
Police operation team had received a call about the fire on 11th of July, and accordingly contacted the building’s security to confirm the information.

He emphasized on the importance of installing such fire safety systems in each building in order to minimise fire aftermath and ensure the safety of all residence.
In another event, three warehouses caught fire in Jebel Ali, Dubai, and the fire was successfully controlled by civil defence.
