The Lifesavers’ Connect Hub (LCH) at Kallang Fire Station, Singapore, was officially opened by Assoc Prof Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of National Development on 31 May 2022.

As part of Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF)’s vision to build ‘A Nation of Lifesavers’, SCDF aims to equip one million persons with lifesaving skills by 2025. To achieve this, SCDF has established the Lifesavers’ Connect (LC) Network to increase public engagement and increase the training touchpoints for our community to learn emergency preparedness (EP) skills.

The LC Network will consist of LC Zones at SCDF fire posts and at fire stations , LC Centres at Division Headquarters and brought together by the LCH.

The LCH at Kallang Fire Station will host volunteer leadership development programmes and dialogues at free of charge to further educate SCDF volunteer leaders beyond lifesaving skills. The programmes are designed to benefit volunteers to ensure they are able to carry out their roles meaningfully with SCDF and allow them to function as well-rounded volunteers.

The integrated LCH at Hill Street will house the Civil Defence Heritage Gallery, the Emergency Preparedness Centre and a leadership development space. The LCH will serve as a focal point for all Lifesavers in the community to step up as a volunteer to conduct ground-up collaborative projects and initiatives relating to EP. Through the LCH, partnerships among all partners and volunteers will be forged. Through this dedicated premises, volunteers will be able to interact and exchange knowledge with one another to equip themselves with EP skills and build resilience in facing emergencies as a community.

 Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of National Development, commented: “With the opening of the Lifesavers’ Connect Hub, volunteer leaders can come together to share knowledge and experience with one another, creating and implementing valuable emergency preparedness projects. The programmes at the Lifesavers’ Connect Hub will also hone the leadership skills of our volunteers.”
