Planning and policies

The SCDF initiated its community service programmes in 1998 by supporting a group of identified charities. Recognising that community involvement efforts contribute towards meeting SCDF’s corporate goals and objectives, our programmes are endorsed and supported by the SCDF’s senior management. The SCDF aims to integrate our community service programmes into our core business through providing expertise services to our adopted homes/ charities. For example, our staff may help the adopted charities to develop fire safety plans or to conduct emergency exercises at the homes.


All SCDF personnel are given opportunities to volunteer and participate in community service programmes. To avoid overloading the units, ongoing commitments to other community activities are reviewed prior to the introduction of new initiatives.

Support For Charitable Organisations

SCDF’s efforts in community service are channelled into three designated categories based on a list of charities assigned to the care of individual sub-units. The categories are defined according to the nature of the charities and the types of support that SCDF can extend. These categories are as follows:

  1. Category A : Voluntary work and professional assistance rendered to assigned homes.
  2. Category B : Fundraising and other activities carried out for assigned charities related to emergency services or the Home Team.
  3. Category C : Other ad-Hoc fundraising efforts.

Environmental Initiatives

Efforts to conserve electricity and water are well-integrated into SCDF’s overall activities, core functions and processes. SCDF had achieved the mandatory certification such as Water Efficient Building Award/Friends of Water by Public Utilities Board (PUB), the National Water Agency.

SCDF also actively promoted good environmental habits/practices among stakeholders.
