His Excellency Interior Minister Lt-General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa chaired the 11th meeting of the Civil Defence Council on Wednesday. The meeting was attended by HE the Minister of Electricity and Water Affairs, HE the Minister of Works, Municipalities & Urban Planning, HE the Minister of Health, HE the Minister of Industry, Commerce & Tourism, HE the Minister of Information Affairs, HE the Minister of Oil, the Chief of Public Security and the Chief Executive of the Supreme Council for Environment.

HE the Interior Minister conveyed His Royal Highness the Prime Minister’s appreciation of the distinguished Civil Defence work and its professionalism in dealing with the recent fire in an under-construction building in the Seef District. The firefighters had dealt with and controlled the fire despite strong winds. He also appreciated the preparedness and efficiency of the Civil Defence teams.

HE the Minister of Oil praised the efficiency of the Civil Defence in dealing with various cases, including the fire in an oil pipeline in Buri and a fire in the refinery. He said the losses could have been more without the excellent performance of the Civil Defence teams.

After that, the meeting reviewed the topics on the agenda, in which the Chief briefed the participants about Bahrain’s readiness to deal with top emergency cases and the role of the National Disaster Management Committee in re-evaluating Bahrain’s preparedness in view of the new regional risks, in cooperation with the UK-based Emergency Planning College.

HE the Interior Minister affirmed the importance of conducting a comprehensive study in this regard and lay down the requirements as part of the efforts to ensure general safety of the public.

HE the Minister of Works, Municipalities & Urban Planning sought to associate the General Directorate of Civil Defence in processing the licensing applications for industrial workshops, garages and petrol stations to enforce related safety rules and improve the safety of those sites. He also said that associating the Civil Defence and the Supreme Council for Environment would ensure easy access to them in case of fire cases. HE the Interior Minister directed the Chief to determine the related security requirements.

The Ministry of Oil gave a briefing on the latest developments relating to the Bahrain natural gas importation station project, as part of the energy security strategy. The project is 87% complete and is expected to be ready in the first quarter of 2019. It includes three parts - a sea utility to import gas, a treatment station, and gas pipelines to the industrial areas and other establishments.

HE the Interior Minister directed the implementation of the best safety measures to operate the project while HE the Minister of Oil stressed the importance of coordination with HE the Interior Minister through joint committees.

The Chief Executive of the Supreme Council for Environment briefed the participants about the network of radiation detection stations in Bahrain. He said the council had cooperated with the International Atomic Energy Agency to install an early radiation detection system that includes five stations that work on solar energy. This hi-tech system is linked with the Supreme Council for Environment through the government database and the National Disaster Management Committee in case of an emergency. The brief revealed that there was a geneal decline in the detected radiations.

HE the Interior Minister stressed the importance of expanding the detection network by increasing the number of stations and determining the normal radiation percentage for each area.

HE the Interior Minister concluded the meeting by thanking the council members for their dedication to improving security and the safety levels for the public.
