The paper "Application of Principles of Management of Financial and Physical Resources in the Fire Services" is an engrossing example of coursework on management. Abu Dhabi is an oil-rich state of the United Arab Emirates. There are scores of business centers, high rising buildings, and other facilities which are situated very close to each other. The temperature in summer goes very high and the electric short-circuiting sometimes becomes a major cause of fires in the city. This report is intended to critically assess the principles of resource management, especially human resource management in the fire and rescue service.
The principles of management of financial and physical resources as applied in the fire service are also discussed in the report. Moreover, the procurement process of different vehicles in the fire and rescue service is also properly analyzed. The operational assurance and evaluation principles have also been discussed in the report. A whole perspective of fire and rescue service in Abu Dhabi is given in the background.

The efficient use of the resource is much more important than anything else. But for the sake of convenience a general overview of the broad resource management principles are given as below; Operating funds have to be maintained and improved for ongoing service delivery.
The availability of funds in an organizational outfit is not enough. The operating funds have to be maintained and utilized for the best possible ongoing service delivery.
