Comprising 55 entities, the Events Security Committee delineated sectors – North, Central, West, and Maritime – to effectively manage celebrations. 

Firework displays are scheduled across prominent locations, including Burj Khalifa, The Beach, Bluewaters, Palm Jumeirah, and Kite Beach, focusing on ensuring safety and preventing congestion.

The committee arranged six viewing screens to accommodate workers in coordination with the Permanent Committee for Labour Affairs.
