Our Response Matters

With the terror threat at its highest level in recent years, it is more important than ever for the whole of Singapore to come together to safeguard our way of life. Every member of our community can play a part in the SGSecure movement.

Emergency Preparedness Days

Lifesaving Skills

To prepare residents for the reality of a terror attack, the People's Association, with the support of the Home Team, is conducting Emergency Preparedness Days (EP Days) in the heartlands. Residents attending these EP Days will be taught what to look out for to stay vigilant, how to respond in a terror attack (Run, Hide, Tell), as well as essential lifesaving skills such as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED) and Improvised First Aid (IFAS).

Check out the schedule of upcoming EP Days here:​

Preparing Your Organisation

Guides for Workplaces and Other Premises

The Advisories on Contingency Planning and Protective Security provide useful tips to premise owners on how to implement protective measures and develop contingency response plans to prepare for the possibility of a terror attack.

In conjunction with the Ministry of Manpower and other tripartite partners, a SGSecure Guide for Workplaces was developed to help businesses cope with the terror threat. The guide provides actionable recommendations for companies to help them be SGSecure-ready.

You can access these materials on our resources page.

Business Risk Management through bizSAFE 

bizSAFE is a five-step programme that assists companies to build up their workplace safety and health capabilities so that they are able to achieve quantum improvements in safety and health standards at the workplace.

Since September 2017, SGSecure elements have been included in the bizSAFE framework to assist companies to build the relevant capabilities to become SGSecure-ready.

Find out more about the programme at or contact [email protected].

Volunteer Opportunities

Download the MyResponder mobile application to find the closest AED and help save lives. The app also alerts volunteers to nearby cardiac arrest cases so that CPR and AED procedures can be promptly carried out before the arrival of SCDF paramedics.

Download the mobile application on iOS App Store or Google Play.

Home Team Volunteers Network

There are a range of volunteer opportunities available across the Home Team. You can visit the Home Team Volunteers website, at, to find out more, and sign up to volunteer.

Volunteering in your Neighbourhood

The People’s Association is a key SGSecure partner, helping to sensitise, train and prepare residents in the neighbourhoods for a terror attack, including in skills such as First Aid and CPR-AED.

If you are keen to contribute your skills and knowledge, you may wish to consider joining PA's volunteer schemes in emergency preparedness. You can do so by registering your interest through the PA website, at

SGSecure Outreach across Domains

We are conducting SGSecure outreach in schools, workplaces and other community groups.

​​Students can participate in SGSecure assembly talks and mobile exhibitions, and learn about our community response to terror through a SGSecure-themed storybook and a card game.

SGSecure briefings are being conducted for key industries and unions. Security personnel and in-house first responders from various companies are also being trained as SGSecure responders under the Police's Project Guardian and SCDF's Company Emergency Response Team programme.

We are also working with the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth to foster mutual understanding between different faiths through initiatives such as:

  • Broadening the Race and Religion Interaction through Dialogues and General Education (BRIDGE), an initiative to provide safe spaces to discuss sensitive issues, tackle prejudices and deepen shared understanding among Singaporeans of different ethnicities and faiths
  • SGSecure Community Network, which connects religious and community organisations across different faiths and cultures to strengthen emergency preparedness, including helping places of worship to become more crisis-ready

Join us at one of our outreach events soon!
