Earlier this morning at 8 a.m., SCDF officers paid tribute to the late SGT1 Edward H Go, our firefighter who lost his life in the firefighting operation at 91 Henderson Road on 8 December 2022.

For his steadfast dedication in duty and sacrifice in service to the nation, CPL Edward was posthumously promoted to the rank of SGT1.

Across all fire stations, HQ SCDF, SCDF Division HQs and the Civil Defence Academy, the fire call alarm was broadcast. This fire call alarm is sounded to activate fire station crews to respond to an emergency. This morning’s sounding symbolises The Last Call for the late SGT1 Edward.

A minute of silence was observed by SCDF officers in honour of SGT1 Edward’s memory, followed by a tribute delivered by COMR Eric Yap, Commissioner SCDF.

“His passing has hit everyone in the SCDF very hard. No words can adequately describe the profound sense of loss. We will remember SGT1 Edward’s selflessness, professionalism and commitment to duty. For those of us who knew him personally, they will remember how proud he was to be a firefighter. Let SGT1 Edward be an inspiration to all of us in SCDF.”

Blinkers and sirens of SCDF emergency vehicles were also turned on for 15 seconds after the message was delivered, as a mark of respect.

SGT1 Edward will be accorded ceremonial honours later today.
