    On a more serious note, it exposes our vulnerability. It also exposes how Singaporeans react to emergencies. Civil Defence needs to seriously educate us on how to respond positively in such situation. Wonder how many families have stock up on essential items eg batteries, candles, matches, batteries powered radio, readily cooked foods, water, etc ?

    Jamming up 999 hotlines ??? Leave them alone for other emergencies which are likely to occur in a prolonged blackout situation eg. people trapped in lifts, road accidents, increased fire risks, etc

    ST today reported Ivy Singh's remarks "I cant believe this". Such remarks demonstrate the typical Singaporean's reactions. It does not help the situation at all.
    Batteries have shelf lives too..... back to basics, candles+matches probably work better than flashlights/torchlights that don't work. Or one of those shake shake got light sticks use in concerts! heehee

    Candles and matches carry higher risk of fire when emergency services can be expected to be slower to respond in a blackout situation. You are left to fend for your loved ones and yourself. CD does not recommend using naked flame.

    Default ST headline: Power plants backup systems fail

    So as it turns out, the fault was local. Don't know why the PR guys need to phrase their initial comments like it was caused by external factors, first instinct always seems to cover their own a**. In this case it even lead to misunderstanding and unsavoury racial comments on Clubsnap against our Indonesian neighbours.

    Speaking of which , still no sign of an apology/contrition from a certain post-er? Or his PC still kena blackout?
