The National Early Warning System
The National Early Warning System (EWS) is a set of
procedures, policies and technologies, together, focus on the wellbeing and
safety of all residents in the UAE, including the visitors. This is achieved through effective and fast
public warning. The importance of EWS
lies in the following main objectives:
Preserve lives and property by reducing the impact of
emergency crises and disasters, by reaching as many people as possible to warn
them of the potential danger or threat through various means of disseminations
in a timely manner.
The governance of the EWS throughout the country and all
the government agencies and institutions in the UAE for the proper coordination
in the process of warning and dissemination and to ensure the effectiveness of
public response and interaction.
Ensure the accuracy and speed of issuance of warnings
through the activation of integrated electronic systems.
Supporting the emergency management system in the UAE in
all the phases of an emergency.
Strengthening the status of the UAE and its
classification in the global indicators of readiness
