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.
During the seminar, a total of 7 presentations and 2 panel discussions were delivered by distinguished local and overseas speakers from various sectors. We applaud all speakers, distinguished guests, delegates for making CERT Seminar a successful event.
The seminar was supported by SCDF, SISO, WSH Council, IFE, FSMAS, NFEC and SLP.
The next upcoming event will be AGM 2018 in May 2018.
