SCDF Opens 14 Fire Stations For Families To Learn Fire Safety Skills
With the school holidays around the corner, are you racking your brains to think of where to bring your child?
Well, a field trip to a local fire station to check out the bright red fire trucks or pick up a few fire safety skills sounds like a fun possibility.
Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) will be opening fire stations across Singapore to public every Saturday from 9 to 11am for free.
Here’s what you need to know if you plan to take the fam for an excursion to your nearest station.
Fire hose demo & pole-sliding firefighters
The open house offers a chance for both you and your kids to learn about the daily operations of a Fire Station.
There will be demonstration of how to use firefighting equipment like this famous water hose demo.
The different roles of the SCDF will also be covered, including how they respond to emergencies.
We’d recommend this activity too, that’ll definitely intrigue the kiddos — watching actual SCDF firefighters swirl down the pole in style.
SCDF vehicles used during the operations will be showcased to allow you and your child to see what they contain up close.
Here’s a short preview clip by SCDF on what else you can expect at the open house!
Looks like September holiday plans are settled for now — we think it’s a great way for your kids to have fun and learn at the same time!
