The Civil Defence have advised all petrol and service stations in the country to install alarm systems that will be linked to its central operation room and will functional round-the-clock. The proposed link would enable firefighting and rescue teams from the Civil Defence to rush to a petrol station in the eventuality of any untoward incident such as fire or leakage. Many petrol stations in Doha city, in its sprawling suburbs as well as other parts of the country were built years ago but rapid urbanisation has brought some of them closer to residential areas, putting public safety at risk, sources said. It is dangerous to have petrol stations close to homes, sources said. Source : Qatar Chronicle
