Al Falasi explained the motive behind the launch of this campaign and said that it strives to spread awareness in society regarding the risks that are linked with fireworks, capture unlicensed firecrackers, impose severe punishment on the violators, and activate communication and coordination between governmental and private institutions to fight these phenomena.

Under the Article 54, any person found trading in, exporting, importing or even manufacturing fireworks or getting them inside or outside of the country without an official license shall be imprisoned for almost one year, and a shall can also be imposed not less than Dh100,000 or either of the above said punishments.

Dubai Police are taking every measure to safeguard the citizens so that they can have a happy Eid, which is the holiest occasion in the community. Before the arrival of Eid Al Fitr, Dubai Police patrol various areas to ensure security and safety.
