U.S. Embassy Singapore and the Singapore Civil Defence Force Conduct a Joint Emergency Response Exercise

U.S. Embassy Singapore and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) conducted a joint emergency response exercise on October 15. The exercise tested the response of Embassy personnel to a HAZMAT incident and involved over 50 First Responders and the use of specialized emergency response equipment from both the Embassy and SCDF.

This is the first time that such a bilateral training and cooperation HAZMAT exercise has been conducted with a diplomatic mission in Singapore. We are grateful to our SCDF partners for working hand-in-hand with us to ensure that the Embassy is ready to respond in the event of an emergency.
