With the installation of AEDs, we would like to encourage residents to be trained in CPR-AED skills so as to render immediate assistance to cardiac arrest victims prior to the arrival of SCDF.
If you are interested to learn life-saving skills (including CPR-AED), sign up for the 1-hour Dispatcher-Assisted first REsponder (DARE) Plus Programme at your nearest Community Centre once the AEDs are installed in your neighbourhood.
The DARE Plus Programme includes the following contents:
a. DARE training (CPR-AED training focusing on chest compressions without mouth-to-mouth ventilations);
b. Run, Hide and Tell;
c. Improvised First Aid Skills (IFAS) on Press, Tie and Tell; and
d. The Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep (P.A.S.S) method of operating a fire extinguisher.
If you are keen to pick up life-saving skills today, you may sign up for the Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP).
All these programmes are free of charge.
