Civil Defense tasks are focused on maintaining the national resources of the country and protecting the lives of the public. In order to perform these tasks, the General Directorate of Civil Defense will use all available methods to spread awareness, warning, and safety messages to the public in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In case of an emergency, Civil Defense will immediately communicate with all people to ensure they follow proper safety procedures.
We, at Civil Defense, are proud of our ability to employ the revolution in media for our own advantage, such as social networks, Civil Defense applications, not to mention the latest vehicles and technical equipment, manpower we have. Moreover, the General Directorate of Civil Defense launched a website to reach out to all people to spread different awareness messages. In addition to all this, the General Directorate of Civil Defense has succeeded in building effective partnerships with a large number of printed and electronic newspapers, national and international TV channels, to broadcast awareness programs about all types of risks that may threaten safety of lives and properties. These programs, also, provide the public with the minimum requirement of skills and knowledge about how to avoid those risks and reduce the amount of damage, if it happened, God forbids.
The increase of public awareness about safety requirements and their appreciation of the sacrifice and efforts of our personnel are the outcome of Civil Defense's success in implementing a large number of electronic windows to communicate with the public. These electronic windows are an important means of communication between Civil Defense's commands and their personnel stationed throughout the country, which allowed them to identify their needs and the hardships they encounter in their places of work and then seek to provide solutions.
Modern communication technologies have enabled Civil Defense to commemorate the names of Civil Defense martyrs, who gave their lives on duty and presented the finest examples of sacrifice.
Because our goal is the safety of the public, our doors will always remain open for everyone. We will also communicate through different electronic windows to identify the degree of public satisfaction with the services we provide. Finally, we are always ready to provide more martyrs and answer call duty for the sake of our country and its people.
