Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP)


Notice of Changes to the Community Emergency Preparedness Programme


Please be informed that in line with the latest revised community Safe Management Measures (SMMs), SCDF will be revising the CEPP class size to a maximum of 50 participants from 1 April 2022.


Mask wearing is optional.


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

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.
