The Civil Defence Emergency Handbook is one of the primary means through which the SCDF reaches out to all segments of the population. It aims to equip our readers with essential life-saving skills in times of emergency.
The latest 2016 edition contains updated information as well as new topics such as what to do in the event of gas leaks, when encountering unruly crowd, when you are caught in a fire in super high-rise residential buildings as well as tips to prevent a vehicle fire.
There is also a section on how the public can play an important role as Community First Responders by equipping themselves with key lifesaving skills namely CPR and AED procedures, basic first aid and basic firefighting techniques through fire extinguishers and hose reels.
*The Malay, Tamil and Chinese versions of the handbook will be available for download by Mar 2017.
