Don't be alarmed if you see an unusual amount of activity involving security units and vehicles around the Dubai Opera on Thursday morning.

That's because an evacuation drill will be carried out from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.

It's aimed at assessing emergency preparedness and response capabilities.

The Dubai Civil Defence has urged the public to stay away from the exercise site, not to take any photographs, and to give way to emergency vehicles.
