Dubai Municipality, in collaboration with Dubai World Trade Centre, organised a training course on how to handle data from seismic monitoring systems in high-rise buildings and link them to the corresponding emergency and response plan.

Khalifa Al Marri, head of infrastructure at DWTC, said that the emergency department personnel at the DWTC had been trained on how to operate the system and link the monitoring system’s data to the response plan.

The training also included an evacuation drill, said Mr Al Marri, adding that it was part of efforts to boost preparedness for seismic shocks although they are a rare occurrence in the UAE.
