Every Saturday from 9.00 am to 11.00 am is Fire Station Open House. (except for Jurong Island Fire Station). Eios decided to visit Tampines Fire Station on one of the Saturdays.
Eio kids were excited about this trip. Once we reached the station, Mrs Eio presented her Nric to one of the officers on duty at the entrance to exchange for an entry pass into the station.
The children visiting the station will receive the SCDF helmet. Once Eio kids put on these helmets, they were all ready to act as firemen!
When we were at the Tampines Fire Station, the alarm went off 3 times. The fire engines & ambulances went off immediately. What a busy day for our Civil Defence Force!
We are very grateful to the officer who took us for a tour around the station. With his wealth of experience (more than 20 years), we learnt a lot from his explanations.
Some hands-on & sitting in a fire engine.
Powerful water spray gushing out from the fire hydrant. All kids are excited to have a try to on off the hose.
Em’s turn… He tried a short while… let not waste water & give other children a chance to try it out.
This pole is 3 storey high. The firemen could injured themselves if they are not careful when they are sliding down the pole.
In the command center… This is when we filled in the feedback forms. We were really pleased & truly enjoyed this trip.
Taking Fa mily photo before making our way home. Really appreciate our SCDF for saving lives & making Singapore a safer place to live in.
Thanks to our SCDF officer for our fruitful trip!

For smaller group, you can just walk-in. Mrs Eio doesn’t want to disappoint Eio kids, so she called up the fire station a few days before the visit to make sure they are not holding any event on that sat.
Transfer of learning. Role play at home after our Fire station visitation. It’s educational, on a non-sch day (sat), absolutely FOC. So what are you waiting for? 😃
