Dose # 63: Fire & Rescue 2: Experiencing the SGFPC

Today and tomorrow we’ll take you inside the Singapore Global Firefighters and Paramedics Challenge or SGFPC – lots to learn and lots of new tech to see…

Dose # 62-68- Fire & Rescue
Learning Excursions and Party Theme

Dose #63:
Fire & Rescue 2:
Experiencing the SGFPC

The Idea: take your kids to activities organised to engage the general public with fire & rescue and emergency care professionals

Visit to: the Singapore-Global Firefighters & Paramedics Challenge 2014


Benefits: it is both play and learning for children;  children get to play grown ups as they try out the big engines and life saving technologies; children learn about different professions early on, the experience will instill in young children an appreciation for the men and women who dedicate themselves to saving lives.

Fun, fun, fun!


An Overview of CPR – I was sort of worried that my 4 year old was learning this –I asked the paramedic “isn’t it a little early? ” As it turns out something as simple as asking “Are you ok, are you ok.” may just save lives
