DUBAI – The Ajman Civil Defence has ordered that gas cylinders sold in the emirate must be fitted with automatic mechanisms to prevent gas leaks.
The new rule came after a spate of gas explosions in the emirate this year injured at least six people. In January, five people were hurt after a gas leak explosion in Feza Café in Ajman. A few months later, a gas leak in a villa left a woman severely injured.
Brigadier General Mohammed Ali Jumeirah, Deputy Deirector of Ajman Civil Defence, said that the new rule will be implemented in January.
“The new regulators are equipped with automatic mechanisms to shut off the gas flow if a leak or sudden crack in the hose have been detected,” Ali Jumeirah said.
“Obligating gas companies to replace regulators is the first phase of a scheme to change the culture of gas cylinders use in order to minimise risk of gas leakage,” he added. ICA/Expat Media
