You may have heard about Civil Defence in the newspaper or over the television. Over at the gallery, you can know more about SCDF operational capability, sit in the fire engine on display and check out the fire fighters suits and rescue equipment.

Learn more about the major fire events in the past

History will repeat itself if precautionary measures are not taken. In the gallery, you will relive the moments of two major fires which happened in Singapore.
