Muscat Nights prioritizes safety and convenience of attendees

The Muscat Nights, the annual festival of fun, entertainment and cultural exchange, is in full swing. With the festival ending on February 4th, the organisers are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that attendees have a memorable and safe experience.

The Royal Oman Police (ROP) is playing a crucial role in ensuring the safety and security of festival-goers. “We are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that everyone visiting the festival is safe and has a wonderful time,” said Maj Abdullah bin Sulayem al Kalbani, officer at the Qurum Natural Park Security Centre. “The heads of safety and security at the festival are constantly monitoring the security, traffic, and preventive measures to make sure visitors have a hassle-free experience.”

In addition to securing the entrances of the festival grounds, ROP officers are conducting foot patrols to offer aid and assistance to festival-goers. The officials on duty are able to respond to communications and complaints quickly and efficiently, and attend to any emergency events that may occur within the park.

ROP has also organised traffic patrols and is urging festival-goers to follow the rules and regulations for a smooth festival experience. The Royal Oman Police has formed teams that specialise in securing the festival sites, including the Special Missions Police Command, the Muscat Governorate Police Command, the General Traffic Department, and the Civil Defence and Ambulance Authority (CDAA).

“Visitors are advised to adhere to the regulations, laws, public morals, and safety requirements set by those in charge of managing the activities of Muscat Nights,” Maj Al Kalbani said. “They should constantly monitor their children, protect their personal belongings, and follow the rules and regulations.”

Additionally, Maj Al Kalbani encouraged vehicle drivers to avoid parking their vehicles in front of homes, shops, and other buildings, which can cause disruptions. He recommended that visitors enter the festival from the gate adjacent to the Children’s Museum in Qurum, where there is more parking and easier access.
