SINGAPORE: The Civil Defence Academy (CDA) will be redeveloped over the next three years to have more realistic training facilities, including virtual reality firefighting training and mock-ups of a bus interchange and shopping mall.

Opened in 1999, the academy in Jalan Bahar is where the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) trains its national servicemen and regular personnel in areas like disaster management, firefighting as well as urban search and rescue.

Milipol Asia-Pacific New Date
18 – 20 May 2022

Original Event Date: 21-23 July 2021

For several months, the Milipol Asia-Pacific team in Singapore have been diligently working to support our community. Along with the relevant national authorities in Singapore and the wider APAC region, we have been relentlessly preparing the next edition of Milipol Asia-Pacific to be a platform to help recover and to reinvigorate our industry. In this challenging period we have also honed our health and safety procedures and put in place new initiatives so as to ensure the event is as successful and safe as possible.

However, as a result of the evolution of regulations regarding the COVID-19 situation and its consequences such as restricted air travel, we will be postponing Milipol Asia-Pacific to 18 – 20 May 2022.

Rest assured, we will continue to deliver our best and to remain as your preferred partner to this community, so we look forward to seeing you then..
