SHARJAH, 8th June, 2023 (WAM) — Saned Integrated Facilities Management has urged all government and private entities, industrial and commercial facilities and residential buildings to install the early warning ‘Aman’ system, based on its objectives to provide the highest levels of safety in Sharjah,
The new system and device, implemented by Saned, is supervised by the Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority. The device links fire systems in the facilities to the General Directorate of Civil Defense and Saned, with the goal to reduce response times to combat with fire hazards and emergencies.
Sultan Al Ketbi, CEO of Saned Facilities Management, stressed the need to install the early warning system ‘Aman’, which plays a great role in reducing response times for fire-related emergencies. The system works to monitor the validity of alarm and fire systems in facilities and ensure their effectiveness, which contributes to protecting lives and property and provides the highest levels of protection and safety in Sharjah.
Al Ketbi highlighted that the system has been successfully employed to aid in the early detection of fires; a tower in the Emirate of Sharjah recently benefited from the ‘Aman’ system and suffered no losses due to a recent fire emergency.
Al Ketbi added, “More than 7,753 Aman devices have been installed in various areas of Sharjah since the programme began. We are working diligently to ensure that all residential, commercial, and industrial facilities and areas in the Emirate are covered by the Aman programme, as it is mandatory for public safety.”
He further explained, “We seek to reach 100% compliance from owners of real estate, facilities and amenities in Sharjah, to which the decision to install and connect a safety system to protect buildings from fires and accidents is in line with our goal to enhance the overall well being of all residing in the Emirate.”
Aman is an early warning system adopted in the Emirate of Sharjah to protect community members from fire hazards. The system is in direct contact with the Sharjah Civil Defense Authority and links to a control room that operates according to the highest international safety standards. In cooperation with the Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority, the system strengthens the security and safety strategy of the Emirate of Sharjah and helps spread awareness of best practices in accident and fire prevention.
The system is managed by Saned Integrated Facilities Management, which is one of the projects of Sharjah Asset Management, the investment arm of the Government of Sharjah. Saned provides integrated facilities management, building maintenance and related technical services to commercial and government entities, in addition to energy management and sustainable initiatives. The Saned team also provides technical services specialised in the security and safety of facilities and amenities.
