The PA and its Grassroots Organisations' (GROs) Emergency Preparedness Programmes seek to strengthen the understanding and ties between people of different races and religions, and build up our community's skills and knowledge in coping with emergencies.
Through these Programmes, residents will learn emergency preparedness skills and get involved in emergency exercises. Our objective is to help Singaporeans cope with shock and to stay calm and be resilient. This will ensure that our community stays together, and we can return to our daily lives as quickly as possible.
A wide range of Emergency Preparedness activities and programmes are organised at the constituencies all year round. Through the Community Emergency and Engagement Committee (C2E) and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), the PA and its GROs work with other emergency authorities to prepare, train and support the community to deal with emergencies which include the threat of terrorism. The initiatives include:
- Community Emergency Preparedness Day
- Publication of Grassroots Emergency Response Guide Book
- Community Safety and Security Programme
- Community Engagement Programme
Pick up life skills such as Community Emergency Preparedness Programme, Standard First Aid (with certification), Basic Cardiac Life Support (with certification) and Managing Crisis Behaviour. Find out more on these Emergency Preparedness programmes at a CC near you.
Or find out how you can play your part by joining CERT.
Community Emergency Preparedness
Want to learn how to administer Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) or use a fire extinguisher?
These are skills you will learn through the activities conducted on Emergency Preparedness Day (EP) Day. Organised by the grassroots organisations (GROs) with support from the Home Team agencies, EP Day is a round-the-year constituency-based event.
Community Emergency Preparedness is about getting residents prepared so that the local community will know how to respond effectively to an emergency.
Join us at our EP Days and equip yourself with basic knowledge on what to do during an emergency!
