Safety Management Measures to Take Note of at The Fire Stations

To ensure the well-being of both the staff and visitors, SCDF has implemented a set of safety measures in addition to the safe-distancing measures.

The key measures include visits capped to a duration of 45 minutes, temperature screening, SafeEntry check-ins, and health declaration. Face masks are to be worn at all times. 

All visits are required to be pre-registered; no walk-ins will be allowed. Each registration is capped at a maximum of 5 visitors.

You can pre-register your visit to the weekly open house held on every Saturday by filling up a form, which will take about 3 working days to process.

The safety management measures in place also apply to visits to the Emergency Preparedness Centre & Civil Defence Heritage Gallery. You can pre-register your visit to the EPC/CDHG by filling up a form or call at 6332 2996.
