The SGSecure movement is Singapore’s community response to the threat of terror. It aims to sensitise, train and mobilise residents to prevent and deal with a terror attack.  It encourages building of community resilience, and empowers the involvement of people from all walks of life to come together to safeguard Singapore and our way of life.


The threat of terrorism is very real, and has continued to evolve since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. 
What is utmost concerning is the threat landscape has expanded considerably and its ideology is continuing to spread to many parts of the world via cyberspace - aiming to radicalise a wider audience to carry out their attacks to create fear, destroy human livelihood and foment distrust among communities.

Before a real terror attack could happen, it is urgent that we continue to strengthen the bonds among our various communities; to prevent racial and religious conflict in the aftermath of a terrorist attack. Hence, it is through getting involved in the SGSecure movement, we can promote a collaborative effort to help safeguard our way of life.

SGSecure is built on three core pillars**:

« Stay Alert (Community Vigilance):
- To be alert to unusual behaviour or 
items, and know how to respond and protect ourselves, our families and friends if we were caught in an attack;

« Stay United (Community Cohesion):
- To build strong community ties; 
cherish and safeguard Singapore's racial and religious harmony, so that we will stand together in peacetime and crisis; and

« Stay Strong (Community Resilience):
- To be ready to deal with crisis if it occurs, be resilient as individuals and as a community, to help each other bounce back quickly after any incident

ADMINISTERING PSYCHOLOGICAL FIRST AID (PFA)

If you are trained in 
Psychological First Aid, you may help by administering to those who need it.

PFA is an initial first response intervention given to people in emotional distress during or immediately after a crisis/ disaster.  It helps people cope with the emotional aftermath of a crisis, build resilience and ease their recovery to normalcy.

AFTER A TERROR ATTACK

The aftermath of a terror attack is traumatising and affects many lives. For some, it could be extremely difficult for them to pick up the pieces to start life again.


Most importantly, we should continue to help one another by doing the following:

KEEP CALM AND CARE FOR OTHERS

- Encourage family, friends and neighbours to recover and return to daily activities as soon as possible

NEVER SPECULATE OR SPREAD RUMOURS

- Always get the latest information and advisories from official sources
- Never post or share unverified videos or photos to avoid causing unnecessary panic or disharmony



KEEP CALM, DO NOT SPREAD RUMOURS & CARE FOR OTHERS
