Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP)


Resumption of Community Emergency Preparedness Programme


We are pleased to inform that with effect from Thursday, 19 August 2021, members of the public can once again attend our Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP).


In support of safe-distancing measures, SCDF has implemented a set of safe management measures to safeguard the health and well-being of our staff and CEPP participants.


The key safe management measures are as follows:

  • Each CEPP class will be capped at a maximum of 16 participants
  • To aid contract tracing, all participants will have to check-in via the SafeEntry app and to complete a health declaration
  • All participants are to wear their facemasks at all times
  • All participants are to observe the social norms such keeping at least 1m distance, avoid shaking hands, avoid talking loudly and ensuring good personal hygiene (e.g. regular handwashing/sanitising hands)


We seek the cooperation of all participants to adhere to the measures put in place while attending the physical classes.


Please do not attend the class if you have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case and have been asked to take a swab test or awaiting further instructions to undergo it.


For CEPP ‘RESPONSE READY’, do note that participants are to complete the online theory portion via before signing up for the practical class. Please attach your e-certificate when signing up.


[Note: To register, please contact one of the 4 SCDF Division HQs nearest to your office/home. Click the link for their contact details.]



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.
