The main role of SCDF is to provide firefighting, rescue and emergency ambulance services, mitigate hazardous materials incidents, as well as formulate, implement and enforce regulations on fire safety and civil defence shelter matters.
SCDF also actively engages the local community through its wide-ranging public educational programmes and community-based activities to enhance the resilience and emergency preparedness of the civilian population.
Today, SCDF is recognised as a professional body of well-trained officers and specialists geared to round-the-clock respond to all types of life-threatening emergencies. An operationally-ready SCDF, working hand-in-hand with a prepared and resilient population, ensures that the nation is capable of handling any untoward eventualities.
