SCDF In The News (Again)

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) announced that it will be conducting an emergency exercise today from 12.30pm to 3pm at the Singapore Sports Hub, including Kallang Wave Mall and Stadium MRT Station. The SCDF said such exercises are part of the on-going efforts to validate and update operational plans and procedures, and the public should not to be alarmed.

What the public should be alarmed about is how the SCDF will be performing their duties in earthquake ravaged Nepal. The SCDF had already sent a 55-man search and rescue team to site, with the first team partnering personnel from Belgium and Spain to cover the Gorkha region, which is near the epicentre of the quake.

Will they be using liquids from a packet drink to put out fires?


Will they cover up the cracks in the floors with Kiwi shoe polish?


Will they be junking perfectly working ironing boards while clearing the debris?


One thing's for sure, they will be documenting their handiwork to show mom they were actually in a disaster area.

  1. Why send Singaporeans to Nepal?
    Since Singaporeans are so lousy.
    Why not send our Singapore Aliens instead.
    A team of Aliens representing Singapore in the Nepal rescue efforts.
    Just like our Table Tennis.

    Let's call the Alien Team - PRATA
    PAP's Rapid Assistance Team of Aliens

  3. They were just simulating a riot in their dormitory, so that they are better prepared with validated and updated operational plans the next time there is a riot. Lessons learned from the fiasco of the Little India Riot. Don't forget the DART helmets. As for Search and Rescue in Nepal, they can make it up as they go along - after all it is a learning experience.

    When there is a shit & dangerous job to do in earthquake Nepal;
    PAP sends Singaporeans to do it.

    Are the Gurkhas still in town or have they rushed back to assist their fellow countrymen in this state of emergency?
