Dubai Police will host emergency drills at two of the emirate's metro stations on Wednesday night.
The drills, which will be carried out in partnership with several federal and local government entities and departments, will take place at Jebel Ali and Expo metro stations.
The exercises will “check the readiness of working teams and the speed of response for emergency situations”, Dubai Media Office said in a statement.
The drills will take place between 1am and 4am.
Dubai regularly carries out drills to assess emergency readiness.
In November, a fire drill was held at Burj Khalifa to put safety measures to the test ahead of the emirate's planned New Year's Eve celebrations.
An evacuation drill was held at Dubai Opera in October to assess the preparedness of emergency response agencies.
