Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP)



With effect from November 2016, SCDF's signature five-modular Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP) has been streamlined into a three-tier structured programme.


The content of the CEPP is also trimmed to focus on core lifesaving skills and essential emergency procedures with greater emphasis on practical hands-on engagements.


This will aid participants' understanding, improve their memory retention and most importantly, allow them to practically apply what they have learnt to help others during emergencies.
