UAE - The Burj Khalifa is set to conduct its annual fire and evacuation drill on Monday.

According to a notice issued by the Dubai Media Office, the drill is held every year to “ensure the highest safety standards for residents, guests and employees” by testing the readiness of response teams to potential crises.

The drill — scheduled to be held at 10.30am — is also expected to help organisers prepare for the upcoming New Year's Eve celebration.
