Thread: Public Emergency Exercise

  1. #1

    Default Public Emergency Exercise

    Just returned from Woodlands MRT Station, and found that the Public Emergency Exercise is held between Bishan and Marina Bay on the NS Line, took place in Dhoby Ghaut, Toa Payoh, Raffles Place and Marina Bay MRT Station.

    Any news?

    well, at least they chose an early sun morning to do the exercise.

    I think they've pretty much done what they can to minimise inconvenience to communters without compromising too much for the exercise.

    A whole train of people hard to disembark at Bishan and switch to bus for the rest of the journey.

    Stupid lor, a lot of people were rushing for work and they do this kind of stupid thing. I waited for 20mins for a train up to yishan. Idiots.

    They could do it before/after working hours in the wee hours of morning. They had to mobilise buses for the exercise and caused some irregular bus trips for normal working hours.

    AFAIK, all these are wayang and nothing but waste of time, not necessary at all.

    I agree, should donate the money to welfare organisation. The CNY show last night alone cost $1.5m.

    But at least this Northstar V can guage the capability of each Agencies and how they work with one another.

    Like Katrina in US showed how vulnerable they are. Then finger-pointing.

    sunday morning....perhaps the disruption will be lesser....hmmmm if really wanna test the ability and operation effectiveness of the authority...they should perhaps run the ex during the weekday peak period...can u imagine a large scale evacuation of thousands of working class at Raffles Place at 8am and the disruption to others as well...it would really put the authority to the test...(will also put Singaporean complain ability to the test)....anyway they have did it this time round....lets just give these guys a pat on their back this time round....yah if really a bombing happen...(touchwood) it can be anytime anywhere.

    Peace

    ha..dun tink so leh...if they do it during wkday at raffles place will only affect alot of businesses ....Singapore have to be business friendly mah...wait nobody wan come invest in Spore anymore...

    But I do agree with you think a bomb in Singapore is very likely lor...we are considered very lucky to have survive so long and also the hardwork of our governement agencies.....look at all our neighbours.......nowadays terriosim really got no boundaries liao....

    If you see the news today, they have declared the exercise a success and are now considering doing it again during the weekday peak period. Look out!
