Kiddy Bag

Kiddy Bag

Kiddy Bag is a safety kit issued by the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) that is designed to help children to cope in an emergency.

The bag contains a whistle to draw attention, a wristband with the child's name, address and contact number to help identify the child in case he or she is lost. The bag includes a bright red cap for chidren to wear and help them stand out in the crowd. There is also a teddy bear to comfort the children during a crisis.

SCDF unveiled the Kiddy Bag on 28 August 2005 during an emergency drill at Kampong Ubi. [http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews/view/165382/1/.html]

SCDF has earlier designed a similar Ready Bag tailored for the adults.
