Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi met with several officials of the Armed Forces to follow up on the executive position of establishing a unified national network for emergencies and public safety on Sunday.
The president was briefed on the developments in establishing the national network for emergency and public safety, which is expected to be generalised at the level of the republic and is one of the largest systems of its kind in the Middle East and Africa.
Following the briefing, Al-Sisi directed the integration of the network with development and service projects throughout the country to become a basic system for preserving public and private properties and safeguarding assets.
Furthermore, in a statement, Presidential Spokesperson Bassam Rady said that the president directed the continuation of the efforts of all concerned authorities in the state to achieve optimal utilisation of the national network for emergencies and public safety.
According to Rady, the network aims to quickly contain and respond to all types of emergencies, crises, and disasters with complete efficiency and within a specified time frame by achieving full control, cooperation, and coordination between all concerned authorities in the country in an effort to link all emergency elements and vital facilities through a main centre and specialised operation rooms in each governorate.
This could be done by using modern communication technology within the framework of a unified and fully secured network that conforms to the latest international standards.
