Emergency Preparedness Centre


Are you well prepared for emergency situations? Do you aspire to be a community first responder? Come visit our Emergency Preparedness Centre (EPC) to learn fire safety tips, emergency preparedness knowledge and life-saving skills through fun-filled and state-of-the-art interactive exhibits!


The 280m2 EPC is the first of its kind purpose-built centre in Singapore which utilizes highly visual and interactive exhibits to impart emergency preparedness knowledge and skills to its visitors of all ages. Some of these exhibits include the fire extinguisher simulator which discharges water onto a video wall depicting a few incipient fire scenarios as well as interactive mannequins for visitors to try out the Heimlich manoeuvre and CPR procedure. Its signature exhibit is the Icube which uses the latest state-of-the-art virtual reality 3-D immersive technology to give the visitors a near realistic experience in natural disasters such as typhoon and tsunami.
