SINGAPORE – Postal services provider Singapore Post has equipped some of its vehicles with defibrillators as part of a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) programme that gets first aid-trained drivers to quickly respond to cardiac arrest cases. SingPost joins Strides Taxi, Grab, ComfortDelGro, Ninja Van, private-hire drivers as well as other motorists who ply the roads with automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and are ready to be mobilised. Minister of State for Home Affairs and National Development Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim said that aside from equipping the vehicles with AEDs, the drivers are also trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
