Abu Dhabi’s new approach to emergency response training

Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority is implementing a systematic training approach to enhance the readiness of emergency response teams.

This initiative, known as T-SAT (Training Systematic Approach to Training), is being adopted across centres in Abu Dhabi.

It includes unscheduled drills that simulate major incidents, fire responses, rescue operations, and the handling of hazardous materials.

This programme is part of a broader effort to strengthen the capabilities of emergency services in the region.

Colonel Issa Abdullah Al Marzouqi, director of the Rescue and Fire Department at Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority, emphasised the benefits of continuous training: “We are committed to ensuring the safety of our society and its gains through the continued development of our capabilities and improving our response to emergency situations.”

The broader impact of improved emergency training

The implementation of T-SAT in Abu Dhabi is expected to have a substantial impact on the overall safety and preparedness of the region.

By enhancing the skills and capabilities of emergency responders, the authority aims to ensure a swift and effective response to any incident, thereby minimising risks to the public and property.

This approach aligns with global trends in emergency services, where there is an increasing focus on continuous improvement and adaptation to new challenges.

The initiative in Abu Dhabi serves as an example for other regions seeking to enhance their emergency response capabilities.
