SCDF-Grab joint partnership to equipped 50 private-hire vehicles with AEDs

Started in 2015, the “AED-on-Wheels” programme is an ongoing effort by the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) to have more trained first responders on the roads.

On 28th January 2021, Grab came on board and will equip 50 Grab vehicles with fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and Automated external defibrillators (AEDs). To date, more than 60 Grab drivers have been trained by the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) on how to perform CPR, basic first aid skills, and the use of fire extinguishers and the AED. When cardiac arrests are being reported and the drivers are within a 1.5km radius of the location, the drivers will be alerted via the SCDF’s myResponder app to respond to the cases and perform CPR and use the AED before medical help arrives. Thank you Grab for being on board to help save a life!
