UAE police caution against dangerous behaviors during Eid Al Adha

Omar Abbas - | Mix

The Abu Dhabi Police have issued a warning about ten hazardous and irresponsible behaviors that pose risks to children and young people, potentially disrupting the celebration of Eid Al Adha.

They emphasized the critical role of parents in supervising their children, monitoring their actions, and safeguarding them from various dangers.

Dangerous behaviors identified

  1. Unsupervised Swimming: Leaving children unattended in swimming pools can lead to drowning incidents.

  2. Unattended in Vehicles: Children left in vehicles while parents shop risk suffocation.

  3. Playing and Crossing Streets: Allowing children to play or cross streets without supervision increases the risk of being run over.

  4. Fireworks: The use of fireworks can cause health issues or fires.

  5. Dangerous Vehicle Parades: Engaging in dangerous vehicle parades and reckless driving endangers lives.

  6. Racing Near Residential Areas: Organizing races near homes can be perilous.

  7. Speeding: Exceeding speed limits poses a significant threat.

  8. Distracted Driving: Using the phone or writing messages while driving can lead to accidents.

With an integrated security system and a proactive approach to improve security and safety, the Abu Dhabi Police General Command declared that they are prepared for the Eid Al-Adha celebration. Offering comprehensive support and response services to citizens, residents, and guests is part of their plan.

Young drivers are urged to exhibit responsible behavior and avoid exploiting the festive spirit of Eid for reckless activities. Adherence to traffic laws is emphasized, with increased security and civil patrols to maintain traffic flow around commercial centers, markets, gardens, public parks, and other high-density areas.

The Abu Dhabi Civil Defense Authority has prepared for the Eid Al-Adha holiday in coordination with strategic partners through preemptive response plans. These plans aim to secure community events and activities and ensure 24/7 readiness to tackle emergency incidents during the holiday.

To enhance public awareness and safety, the authority highlighted several precautions:

  • Fire Safety in Vehicles: Drivers are advised to conduct regular maintenance and equip their vehicles with fire extinguishers meeting approved specifications.

  • Home Safety: It’s crucial to have manual extinguishers, fire blankets, and first aid kits at home and to ensure the safety of gas installations.

  • Electrical Safety for Vacationers: Families vacationing abroad should ensure the safety of electrical appliances, disconnect unused ones, secure gas cylinders, and store them away from direct sunlight, outside the kitchen.

Cooperation with Emergency Services

The Abu Dhabi Civil Defense Authority urged the public to cooperate with civil defense teams by promptly reporting emergencies to 999 and allowing rescue, firefighting, and ambulance vehicles clear passage. They also advised against gathering at accident sites to facilitate efficient emergency response.

The coordinated efforts of the Abu Dhabi Police and Civil Defense aim to ensure a safe and joyous Eid Al-Adha celebration. Through vigilant supervision of children, adherence to traffic laws, and proactive safety measures, the community can collectively contribute to a secure festive environment.
