The Mobile Tremorlator is a joint project by the SCDF, Singapore Polytechnic and ST Kinetics aimed at educating the public on proper measures to take during and after tremors.
Mounted on a retro-fitted heavy vehicle, the tremor simulator on wheels goes right into the heartlands to reach out to members of the community.
Through the simulation, the public will get to witness and experience the effects of tremors while learning the proper measures to take e.g.:
- Seeking shelter under a sturdy desk to avoid being hit by falling objects
- Keeping calm and evacuating only when obvious structural defects such as cracks in the walls appear
- Tuning in to the radio for more information and updates on the tremors
The Mobile Tremorlator is deployed at Emergency Preparedness Days and other public education events.
