According to the agreement, a joint framework has been established between the two parties, governing the mutual procedures in a way that enhances safety and civil protection.

These lessons will be based on educational topics identified by the Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority. Leveraging Alef Platform’s pioneering education technology features, the programs will be delivered using effective learning techniques and interactive content such as educational and recreational activities. The program is tailored to suit the needs of different student age groups, enabling all age groups to benefit from the Alef Platform in Abu Dhabi.

His Excellency Brigadier General Mohamed Ibrahim Al Ameri, Director General of the Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority, stated that the Authority continuously strives to strengthen its partnerships with various governmental and private entities to establish a framework based on the governance of joint procedures between the Authority and its partners. He highlighted that the current development efforts are being carried out by the Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority to enhance its work system, whether in its basic tasks or those associated with various government agencies. These developments are being monitored by a specialised team in accordance with the best international standards.
