Singapore disaster management reference handbook 2017
This guide serves as an initial source of information for those individuals preparing for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) activities or immediate deployment with Singapore partner responders in crisis. Additionally, it highlights the important role Singapore plays in preparing for, mitigating, responding to, and recovering from a natural or man-made disaster in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. It also provides decision makers, planners, responders and disaster management practitioners’ greater insight into Singapore Disaster Management (DM) capabilities, thereby enhancing regional civil-military response.
Discussion includes key areas such as the Singapore organizational structure for domestic and foreign disaster management, international DM agreements, regional training programs and exercise support.
