SAF to post its medics in SCDF ambulances

To meet the growing demand in calls for ambulances and emergency treatments, 12 medics from the Singapore Armed Forces will be deployed in Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) ambulances.

The medics will don SCDF uniforms and work closely with SCDF personnel in a three- month pilot from September to respond to civilian medical emergencies.

The Ministry of Defence said the deployment will allow the SAF to fine-tune its operating procedures with the SCDF.
