On 7 February 2022, two residents assisted in evacuating neighbours during a unit fire on the 14th floor at Blk 688F Woodlands Drive 75.

Mr Deevak S/O Premdas was in the neighbourhood when a family member called him to inform that there was a fire at his block. Mr Marcus Lim Chin Keat had just returned home from work when he was also alerted to the fire.

Working as a team, the duo alerted and assisted neighbours, including two persons with disabilities, to evacuate.

Yesterday, on 20 February 2022, Mr Deevak and Mr Marcus were awarded the SCDF Community Lifesaver Award. The award was presented by Mr Vikram Nair, Member of Parliament for Sembawang GRC.

Kudos to these brave individuals for their prompt and exemplary actions during the emergency.
