Al Bustan Centre & Residence partnered with Dubai Civil Defence to conduct a mock fire drill to ensure the readiness of its employees in evacuating the building in the event of a fire.

The activity was a re-enactment of rescue and evacuation techniques and procedures, led by crisis management team leader Yasser Moussa (Deputy General Manager) and Mouhanad El Rammah (Mall Manager).

The initiative was further facilitated by emergency response team leader Ram Singh (Security Manager) along with other ERT members, aimed at boosting communication skills in case of an actual fire and to train the employees and centre tenants to respond quickly, calmly and safely.

The employees learned to initiate “Code Red” when an evacuation is deemed necessary, by using alternate exits & fire/smoke compartments.

Apart from this they were also trained on the proper usage of fire-fighting equipment, pull-stations and fire/smoke compartments that are available within the property.

Moussa El Hayek, chief operating officer  at Al Bustan Centre and Residence, said,  “We prioritise the safety of our guests, customers, and employees and to reflect this belief we regularly conduct training to prepare and educate them and make our response as fast as possible to save our guest's lives in case of emergencies. We are grateful to the Dubai Civil Defence for their commitment, efforts and hard work in promoting safety awareness among Dubai expats and citizens.”
