The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) has received public feedback about companies claiming to be endorsed by the SCDF to sell fire extinguishers and/ or conduct fire safety talks to the public. Furthermore, aggressive, ‘hard-sell’ techniques were adopted to get the public to purchase their products, fire insurance or signing up for their fire safety talks and training seminars.
We would like to inform members of the public that the SCDF is not involved in any sales of fire extinguishers or insurance policy. The SCDF has also not authorised any company to conduct such activities on its behalf. The SCDF would like to remind members of public to exercise caution when dealing with such person or company.
