(MENAFN - The Peninsula) A new Civil Defence Centre with modern facilities was opened yesterday in Al Thumama by the Director General of Public Security Staff Major General Saad bin Jassim Al Khulaifi.

The centre was built as part of the Civil Defence developmental projects. This would cover the areas including Thumama and Airport in addition to the nearby industrial area and would work as a major support to the Hamad International airport fire station.

The centre has two special vehicles to handle fire in flights. In case of an emergency they will support several airport staff, who have completed training from Frankfort airport in handling flight fires and the two fire stations inside the airport with all modern equipment which are managed by General Authority of Civil Aviation.

The opening ceremony was attended by the Director of Logistics Department Brigadier Abdul Aziz Al Ansari and Director of General Directorate of Civil Defence Staff Brigadier Abdullah Muhammad Al Suwaidi and directors of MoI departments and Civil Defence officers. They also toured the facility. The centre presented some awareness programmes to school students as well.

Speaking to the media, Staff Major General Al Khulaifi said that, while Qatar witnessed overall developments in constructional, industrial and all other aspects, it was much needed to develop all sectors corresponding to those developments. Keeping that in mind the Ministry of Interior has expanded greater achievements during the past few years whereas Civil Defence has been equipped with all modern facilities to cope with all emergency situations. He emphasised that the awareness hall in Al Thumama Centre could host a number of awareness programmes to school students.

Brigadier Abdul Aziz Abdullah said that the Thumama Civil Defence Centre was constructed to realise the strategy of the Ministry of Interior in terms of infrastructure and the extension of service centres that provide ministerial services to all the citizens and residents.
