The General Directorate of Civil Defense has so far conducted 10,047 inspections of accommodation and facilities in Makkah and Madinah during Ramadan, to ensure that they meet all safety requirements and comply with regulations.

Meanwhile, the emergency forces of the Civil Defense in Makkah continue to carry out missions to maintain the security and safety of Umrah performers.

The directorate confirmed the forces’ readiness to address potential dangers and intervene quickly in firefighting and rescue incidents with specialized teams to protect lives and property, as well as provide humanitarian services to pilgrims and visitors to Makkah’s Grand Mosque.




The teams also raise awareness about preventive safety in residential facilities and shelters for Umrah performers and visitors to the Prophet’s Mosque.

As part of the campaign, daily awareness messages are broadcast through various platforms, including Civil Defense social media accounts, road screens, text messages and billboards.
