Civil Defence Auxiliary Unit - Fire Fighting and Rescue


Civil Defence Auxiliary Unit (CDAU) Firefighting vocation has played a crucial role since its formation in 2006, responding to fire and rescue incidents alongside SCDF regulars. Previously consisting only of volunteers with prior experience in firefighting and rescue, this vocation will now be opened to volunteers who are prepared to undergo the required training.

The training is to equip you with a strong foundation in firefighting skills and rescue techniques. You are required to pass all modules in the course.

With Experience in Firefighting & Rescue

  • Firefighter
  • Fire & Rescue Section Commander
  • Fire & Rescue Deputy Rota Commander
