Educate Singaporeans on what to do in a crisis

The recent attacks in Paris is a reminder that Singaporeans need to be vigilant and know what to do in the event this happens in our homeland.

I call on government agencies to publish guidelines to educate us on what to do and how to behave, should we encounter this type of events.

A friend of mine worked in a job that involved crisis management in other countries. He was sent for training on what to do - for example, when a bomb explodes, find out where the source is and run in the opposite direction; when shot at, hit the floor immediately.

But these guidelines don't seem to be widely publicised in Singapore. It might be useful to raise awareness in this area, so that people will know what to do if a bomb explodes or any other crisis situation occurs.
