    Members of the public, comprising less than 10 persons in a group, are welcomed to walk-in to any SCDF fire stations (except Jurong Island Fire Station) during the said hours of the open house. Visitors with 10 or more persons in a group are required to make a prior booking of 2 weeks in advance to avoid overcrowding at the fire stations. It is recommended that each group does not comprise over 50 persons at any one time due to the space constraint within the fire stations.

    Visitors to the fire station open house will generally experience the following in the one-hour programme (subject to manpower resources and availability of appliances due to the emergency role of the fire stations):

    • Briefing on operational capabilities of the appliances in a fire station

    • Demonstration on equipment used by firefighters
