The Challenge






The SCDF Lifesavers’ Innovation Challenge 2019 provides an opportunity for undergraduates to propose and develop solutions to address existing challenges faced by the SCDF.

Imagining Emergency Response in a Smart  City

Singapore has embarked on a drive to be a Smart Nation, which leverages the interconnectivity of digital technologies to transform the way we live, work and play. Likewise, public services such as emergency response should evolve and be seamlessly integrated with the digital ecosystem to protect and save lives and property in the Smart Nation. The outcome of using digital technologies should – (i) sharpen operational edge; (ii) engage and empower the community; and (iii) institutionalise fire safety and public protection.
