Got a Question?

Temasek Foundation is piloting a programme to raise awareness of home emergencies by equipping 19,000 households with first aid boxes and knowledge on how to manage emergencies at home.

Home owners and rental tenants of newly-completed public housing developments will receive first aid boxes containing essential first aid supplies as well as a ‘My First Aid Handbook’ which details steps on how to handle common home emergencies.

Working with the Housing & Development Board (HDB), Temasek Foundation will provide the first aid boxes in flats of HDB projects completing from 1 December 2020.

Households will also be able to sign up for free training on how to perform Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) with the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) at Singapore Red Cross Society, supported by Temasek Foundation.

This is part of Temasek Foundation’s Stay Prepared initiative to prepare communities for emergencies.

An estimated 19,000 households will receive the complimentary first aid box. Each unit is eligible for one box.
Please call the supplier Pan-Malayan Pharmaceuticals Pte Ltd at 6296 5751 to seek a replacement within 3 months of receiving your keys.

The expiry date for the supplies in your first aid box is printed at the bottom of your box. Do check the supplies on a regular basis and replenish them when necessary.
