Civil Defence Shelter Information


Procedures for Shelter Occupation

  • Before the start of a wartime emergency, SCDF will increase public education programmes to prepare you to take precautionary and protective measures.
  • You should prepare your shelter for occupation.
  • When the "Alarm" signal from the Public Warning System (PWS) is sounded, you need to move into the nearest shelter.
  • In the shelter, you should tune in to local TV or radio channels for important messages. This can be done via mobile devices using WIFI / mobile networks or portable radios.
  • Once the "All Clear" signal is sounded, you can leave the shelter and resume your daily routine.


CD Shelter Sign

To identify a CD Public Shelter, look out for the CD shelter sign. You will see it near or at the places where the shelters are located.
