SCDF to sound minute—long signal on Total Defence Day

SINGAPORE: In support of Total Defence Day which falls on 15 February, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) will be sounding the "Important Message" signal through the islandwide Public Warning System at 12:05pm.

Members of the public are advised not to be alarmed by the minute—long sounding exercise.

When the signal goes off, members of the public can immediately tune in to any local radio station to listen to an important message broadcast by SCDF.

Held annually, the sounding exercise is part of SCDF’s continuous efforts to familiarise the public with the three Public Warning System signals and to raise awareness on how they should react upon hearing each signal.
