The United Arab Emirates Civil Defense, under the direction of the Ministry of Interior, has a primary role to respond to fire and life safety emergencies as well as ensuring that safety solutions are installed and maintained in all buildings used by both the public and private sectors.
In 2018 the UAE Civil Defense established two strategic partnerships with specialized organizations to help support them in monitoring and verifying fire and life safety alarms across all types of establishments in the UAE.
The Intelligent Command and Control solution (Hassantuk Building), covering commercial buildings and tower blocks, was signed with Injazat Data Systems and the second agreement, signed with Etisalat, is to monitor and detect fire and smoke alarms in private homes (Hassantuk Home). Both solutions come under the banner of "Hassantuk", a name inspired by the UAE national anthem of the UAE meaning "secure and protect you"
The Hassantuk programme aims to support the achievement of the UAE National Agenda 2021 in becoming one of the safest countries in the world as well as sustaining the reduction of the rate of fires and fire related deaths compared to numerous countries worldwide.
