Dubai, UAE - Villa Rotana Dubai has successfully conducted a fire drill in collaboration with the Department of Civil Defence in Dubai involving all the hotel colleagues. The exercise was in line with the Villa Rotana's initiative to provide sufficient knowledge and training as well as to totally prepare its staff when it comes to emergencies like fire.
In-house guests were informed by the management team in advance and many of them chose to participate as they support the hotel initiative. All colleagues are fully aware of the safety procedures and safety evacuation measures, and assisted guests to the nearest emergency exits and outside assembly point.
Mr. Camille Saade, General Manager of Villa Rotana said, “Accidents cannot be predicted and may happen anytime while at work, to prevent and decrease the possibilities the hotel is conducting a series of trainings and internal exercises to all employees on what to be done in case they face any sudden accident or fire. We always work our best to ensure our guests stay to be most enjoyable but our priority at all times is to maintain their safety which is sustained through our continuous efforts and actions.”
“We would like to thank Dubai Civil Defence for their great collaboration and support for the success of those events,” Camille added.
The fire evacuation exercise drill was successful and met the purpose of creating awareness among the employees on what to do before professional help arrives.
