Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said on Friday he is happy with the development that Egypt has achieved in developing crisis and emergency management.
His remarks were made during an inspection tour on Friday of National Emergency and Public Safety Network’s (NEPSN) mobile centers.
President Sisi added that he is happy with the development of the center as it is ready to manage any crisis, noting that the room’s 24-hour service is able to manage any crisis.
The president has made it clear that there are control units in all governorates linked to the central room for state crisis management.
He stressed that for the first time Egypt has crisis management teams in each governorate across the country, enabling the state to deal with any crises.
He noted that all the screens in front of him revealed data about each governorate, in terms of sanitation, electricity, gas or health.
“I’m reassured that these control rooms, which we put in use more than three years ago, have developed to become widespread in all governorates. I’m happy with this development and as well as the high standard of organization of an administration of this level and this development,” he added.
Moreover, the President instructed all governors across the country to raise the efficiency and perform all necessary maintenance on engineering and relief equipment within two months to well manage the business efficiently. He revealed the formation of a specialized committee to examine and inspect all engineering equipment and elements, i.e. cars, sweeping vehicles, bulldozers, in Cairo and other governorates to ensure safety.
President Sisi stressed the necessity of carrying out all necessary maintenance on water stations, pumps and cranes in all governorates within two months, expressing at the same time his overwhelming happiness in taking part in an experience following up such efforts.
He gave the governors a two-month grace to raise the efficiency of all engineering devices and equipment in theier governorates.
