Thread: Public Emergency Exercise

    Default Re: Public Emergency Exercise

    i don't understand how the ppl who are not living in the housing estates, or take buses or MRT going to learn how to survive during the emergency..... I meant since the gov't is doing such "tests" for the major public.... then what about ppl who don't take public transportation or don't stay in housing estate?

    so those who don't get such opporunities.... well learn how to survive or learn how to die smiling....

    My bad, i didn't know it's just to test the cooperation between defense systems .....

    they are targeting places where terrorists will strike most, which are busy places like MRT and bus interchanges.

    There is a higher %age of people living in HDB areas than in private housing, so I think they choose to have the tests in public housing. Also, the amount of injuries sustained if a bomb exploded in public housing is much higher than that sustained if a bomb goes off in some private housing

    I am not saying that they should do the tests or exercise there. But then i don't think the gov't did bother with those who are staying in pte estates.... so if there is any war or anything of any sort? what are those ppl supposed to do? save themselves? or run around with their hands up in the air? Drop to their knees and pray for Lord's kindness?

    just give some ideas what are these ppl supposed to do? like when the alarm is heard, where should they go? where is the nearest bomb shelter? Who can be approached?

    Save the majority.... heck care the minority?

    Terrorism had never got any boundaries at all in the first place. Its only with 911 and the speed of light which information is transmitted these days that made us know this fact.

    I dont quite understand the logic there. Admittedly, the very people who are least likely to be affected by these exercises are the ones most able to get out of the country once anything occurs.

    actually i think the best defense against terrorism is border security. prevent the terrorists and lethal weapons from getting in in the first place. unless there is some hardcore terrorist in our homeland brewing his own chemical weapons then its a different story...

    Logic? treat everyone equally. give those who are in pte estates what u might give the ones in public estates. Not asking for any special treatments, just give some information, like leaflets on how to survive? where to go and so on.

    Actually there are some very old pte estates whereby the houses are owned by the banks, that if the owners sold their houses, they will not have enough to pay off the loan or even have the money to buy a hdb flat. I don't think they can get out of the country, unless they have a sampan hidden somewhere.

    you can actually find information in this website : http://www.gov.sg/c&e.htm you can always try the SCDF website for emergency info

    the government has actually set up websites on emergency related stuff. it's ironical tho.. the reaction of the people - some think it's a waste of time, wayang, impractical, ... some complained of neglect... and more will come...

    i think sg government has done a good job of preparing for emergency, even tho many singaporeans always take the view that nothing will happen to us. at least they try.. whether these measures are practical or not remains to be seen, but I wont hope for a real disaster/emergency to test the government..

    i think we are always too quick to criticise the government in any emergency, like in the case of SARs.. yet many complain when they have to participate in the drills...

    i dont work for the government..in case you are wondering..

    have fun reading!

    Personally i do think the gov't has done a very good job.

    Just like to bring a bit of attention to the ppl who might want to have more information about things that are readily available to those who are living in public housing estates.
    And available in the ways that are available to the public housing estates. nothing more or less.

    Thanks for the site, will try to find out what to do in an emergency on own, as usual.

    Since when they will declare any exercise unsucessful? The last time I was involved in a in-camp exercise, a squadron cocked up the exercise so badly, we still were told it was a success.

    Wayang la.
