SCDF will be conducting an operational exercise at the Marina Bay Floating Platform on Wednesday, 28 July 2010. The exercise will begin at 1am and end at about 4am.
Such exercises are part of SCDF’s on-going efforts to validate and update operational plans and procedures. Related agencies such as SPF and MOH will also be involved in the exercise. In total, about 500 personnel and about 50 emergency and supporting vehicles will be participating in this exercise.
All SCDF vehicles participating in this exercise will have their beacon lights turned on to alert motorists.
