SINGAPORE - The Singapore Civil Defence Force's (SCDF) newest fire station officially commenced operations on the island of Sentosa at 8am on Monday (June 6).

Sentosa Fire Station, which is located at 37 Artillery Avenue, has a fleet of five emergency vehicles: two fire engines, a fire bike, an ambulance and an aerial firefighting and rescue support vehicle.

It is strategically placed to provide emergency services within the island and the immediate vicinity such as the HarbourFront and Telok Blangah areas, SCDF said in a press release.

Since 2008, SCDF had provided emergency services on the island through the Sentosa Fire Post, which housed a red rhino and a fire bike.

The fire post will now cease operations.

With the new station, SCDF's round-the-clock emergency services now span an island-wide network of 21 fire stations and 28 fire posts.
