Within the next 18 months, emergency preparedness days will be rolled out to all constituencies in Singapore, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said in its progress update on the SGSecure movement on Sunday (Sep 24).
Officially launched on Sep 24 last year, the SGSecure movement aims to prepare and train Singaporeans on how to prevent and deal with a terror attack.
“From my own analysis, people are aware that there is such a thing as SGSecure,” said Associate Professor Kumar Ramakrishna, head of policy studies at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.
“I detect that among the public at large, there is an uptick in awareness that we do have a threat of transnational terrorism.”
