In a groundbreaking move, Dubai Civil Defense has launched the world’s first sustainable mobile floating fire station, representing a monumental leap in maritime emergency response capabilities. This innovative station, meticulously designed with both efficiency and sustainability at its core, promises not only swifter response times but also enhanced safety measures for Dubai’s rapidly expanding maritime industry.

This unique floating fire station not only stands out for its functional prowess but also its unwavering commitment to environmental consciousness. Unlike traditional marine fire stations that demand dedicated land space, this mobile marvel eliminates that requirement, resulting in a staggering 70 percent cost reduction and a considerably smaller carbon footprint.

The eco-friendly design of the station goes beyond just its mobility, incorporating features such as energy-efficient systems and a strong emphasis on the utilization of renewable resources. This holistic approach underscores Dubai's commitment to sustainable practices and responsible infrastructure development.

Strategically deployed across key maritime zones in Dubai, the mobile floating fire station aims to significantly slash response times for maritime incidents. The ambitious target is set at an impressive four minutes, ensuring timely intervention that can potentially save lives and protect valuable property.

Notably, the station is equipped with a commendable speed of 11 miles per hour, allowing it to rapidly reach incident locations. Furthermore, it employs smart solutions to bolster the safety index of Dubai’s waterways, making it a technological milestone in maritime safety.

In terms of capacity, the mobile floating fire station can house up to 16 personnel, ensuring an ample workforce for handling diverse emergency scenarios. This not only adds to the efficiency of the station but also reinforces its versatility in responding to a wide range of maritime challenges.

Lieutenant General Expert Rashid Thani Al Matroushi, director general of Dubai Civil Defense, expressed the significance of this milestone, stating, “The deployment of the mobile floating fire station marks a significant step forward in our journey towards achieving global leadership in safety and security. The inauguration of this station not only demonstrates our dedication to generating innovative safety solutions but also aligns with our commitment to contributing to enhancing Dubai’s overall infrastructure and services. A significant enhancement to our marine firefighting capabilities, this facility makes Dubai a frontrunner in reducing response times to maritime incidents, with a target response time of just four minutes.” This underlines the station's crucial role in elevating Dubai's status as a leader in safety and emergency response.
