On Saturday, 9 Aug 2014, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) will sound a 20-second "chime" through its island-wide network of Public Warning System (PWS) sirens at about 8pm to signify the Pledge Moment. A rehearsal will be conducted for the observance of the Pledge Moment on Saturday, 2 Aug 2014. As part of this rehearsal, the SCDF will be sounding the "chime" through its PWS sirens at about 8pm on 2 Aug 2014.
Regardless of location, Singaporeans are encouraged to join in to recite the Pledge and sing the National Anthem when the chime is sounded.
