A-CERTS 6th CERT Seminar 2018

The 6th National Company Emergency Response Team (CERT) Seminar 2018 was held on 29th March 2018 at Furama Riverfront Hotel. This seminar is an annual signature event, organized by A-CERTS, and was well attended by 400 CERT members and fire safety professionals from the various industries. This year's theme is "Dynamics of Emergency Responders' Frontier", which explores how the company emergency responders could deal with the constantly evolving risks, challenges and threats.

In attendance were distinguished VIPs and Guests from the various private sector and government agencies.  We were honored to have the presence of Commissioner Eric Yap, Commisisoner SCDF. He delivered the keynote address at the seminar and stressed on the importance of having well trained CERTs to provide timely intervention during emergencies so as to minimise life loss, casualties, damages to property and business disruption. This was clearly demonstrated in recent oil storage tank fire at Pulau Busing, where the CERT members commenced exposure protection operations before the arrival of the SCDF. They also worked tirelessly hand-in-hand with SCDF Emergency Responders throughout the firefighting operation. The raging fire was well mitigated within 6 hours with not a single casualty. He had also mentioned SCDF's Vision of Building a Nation of Lifesavers by Year 2025.

A-CERTS always look to find interesting and new ways to engage our members and professionals in the industry. As such, this year the members were treated to a session of free bowling at the Westwood Bowling Alley on 23rd Aug 2017. The event started off at 6 pm with members streaming in after indulging to a buffet spread.

A total of 20 members turned up for this weekday event. To make the night more interesting, members were grouped into teams of 4-5. They had an informal competition among them. The competition also brought out the Bowling talents in many of the members, while not forgetting learning for some of the first timers as well. No pressure at all for all as it was just for the fun of it. Everyone was a winner that night and members left the place with smiles and laughter on everyone's face. What a night for all who were there.
