Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP)


Suspension of Community Emergency Preparedness Programme


In view of the tightening of measures in Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) as announced on Tuesday, 20 July 2021, SCDF will be temporarily suspending the Community Emergency Preparedness Programme from Thursday, 22 July 2021.


These additional measures will allow SCDF to mitigate the potential risks in large group or communal activities.


We will continue to monitor the situation closely and update once the situation has improved.





The Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP) focuses on core lifesaving skills and essential emergency procedures with greater emphasis on practical hands-on engagements.


This will aid participants' understanding and allow them to practically apply what they have learnt to help others during emergencies.
