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!
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.
Powerful water spray gushing out from the fire hydrant. All kids are excited to have a try to on off the hose.
This pole is 3 storey high. The firemen could injured themselves if they are not careful when they are sliding down the pole.
Thanks to our SCDF officer for our fruitful trip!
Individuals who want to learn more about scdf & parents with children should visit one of our fire stations this school holiday. For a group of more than 10 people, it neccesary to submit an online application.

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? 😃
