We thank Mr Chan Shou Haou for his feedback on the civil defence emergency handbook ("Bring back civil defence emergency handbook"; Forum Online, Monday).
The handbook was first introduced in 1990 as part of the Singapore Civil Defence Force's (SCDF) public education efforts to impart basic emergency preparedness skills and knowledge to the public.
The handbook has since undergone several revisions over the years and is currently in its seventh edition.
The electronic version of the seventh edition is available for download in the four official languages from the SCDF website, at www.scdf.gov.sg
For greater convenience, the public can also access the handbook via the "mySCDF" mobile app, which is available for download via the Apple and Android app stores.
