Rip-It-Off (Team)

Based on a road traffic accident scenario, contestants will be judged based on their on-site assessment, command & control, vehicle stabilisation, extrication techniques and medical intervention proficiency. A Virtual Reality (VR) component has also been included in this year's iteration to provide a different dimension of realism to the scenario. The team that completes the challenge with the fastest timing without breaching any safety rules will emerge victorious.

Public Challenges

School Challenge

In this challenge involving a gas explosion and fire in a school canteen, student participants will have to execute tasks including extinguishing the fire, performing CPR and extricating a casualty with head and lower limb injuries, and another suffering from cardiac arrest. The difficulty for the scenario is compounded as it requires the participants to manoeuvre through obstacles and confined spaces.

Singapore Challenges

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Challenge

With the terrorist threat at its highest level in Singapore in recent times, the demands placed upon the SCDF personnel in the frontline units have changed significantly in view of the new threat environment. When confronted with active gunmen amidst a bomb blast scenario, an EMS ambulance crew will need to move tactically into the inner cordon and proceed with rapid snatch rescue and administration of critical medical aid to casualties before more comprehensive treatment is provided at the safe zone.

Firefighting Challenge

This challenge depicts a response to a unit fire and showcases the activation of fire crew for medical incidents under the EMS Tiered Response plan. An EMT-Biker is first activated to attend to a cardiac arrest patient. While the EMT-Biker is occupied, a fire crew is activated to assist with another case of cardiac arrest. To complete the mission, the SCDF responders conduct forcible entry to access the affected unit and extinguish a fire with the use of CAF backpack extinguishers.

Confined Space Challenge

Rescuers race against time to rescue casualties trapped within a collapsed structure scenario. This challenge showcases motorised rescue trailers from which rescuers will retrieve the required equipment for lifting slabs and cutting wire meshes. Subsequently, they will lower a casualty with the use of a lowering device and tripod stand. This casualty is then brought out of the tunnels with the use of a SKED stretcher. 

HazMat Challenge

This challenge simulates a Hazardous Material (HazMat) incident that occurred within a chemical plant. Within a Virtual Reality environment, the commander conducts an initial assessment of the situation to identify chemical leaks as well as locate casualties. Transitioning to the practical challenge, the rest of the HazMat responders then conduct rescue of casualties and mitigation of the chemical leaks earlier identified by the commander.
