ITE – Civil Defence Lionhearters Club
The ITE-CD Lionhearter Club is jointly formed by ITE and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) to provide an avenue to engage tertiary students in civil defence, emergency preparedness and humanitarian missions. The Lionhearters will complete the Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP) to equip them with the skills to provide first level response to incidents within the campus grounds. They will be given the opportunity to work alongside with SCDF officers at community events, such as Emergency Preparedness (EP) Days, to impart EP knowledge and skills to the members of public. On the international front, they can be deployed overseas as part of NGOs (Non- Governmental Organizations), such as the Mercy Relief, to undertake humanitarian projects and assist the host countries in construction development projects, such as repair works for damaged schools and drainage systems. To prepare them for their overseas deployment, they will be taught the different cultural sensitivities and traditions of different countries. They will be given an understanding of CEP and will attend sessions on understanding ethnicity to help them appreciate the importance of staying united and resilient during crisis.
