Volunteers are notified via the myResponder Mobile App by SCDF’s 995 Ops Centre of any Cardiac Arrest Case within 400 metres of their location. If you are notified, you may choose to respond to the incident and offer your assistance. The Mobile App will highlight nearby AEDs that may be available.
Once you have located the victim suffering from cardiac arrest, you can assist the original caller who alerted SCDF in performing CPR or helping to apply the AED to revive the patient. SCDF’s 995 Ops Centre may also ask responders to guide the ambulance crew by escorting them to the incident site.
If you are 15 years and above and wish to volunteer, be sure to get your SingPass ID and password ready. If you are under 18 years old, please seek parental consent for your participation. Your handphone number is also required for SCDF to get in touch with you during an emergency.
Your response is entirely voluntary, and we only encourage you to respond when you are available and to do so within safe and reasonable means.
myResponder is the latest project by the Singapore Civil Defence Force. The myResponder Mobile App alerts volunteers to nearby Cardiac Arrest Cases to render first aid before ambulance arrival. With myResponder, volunteers will have the following services at their fingertips:
- Geolocation notification of nearby cases
- Display of nearby incidents using OneMap
- Display of nearby AEDs using OneMap
- Geolocation enabled dialling of 995
- Access to the National AED Registry
Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Great app with room for improvements
The objective of the app is noble and well met. Just slight suggestion on the UI/UX -
1) For iOS app there is a feature on adding 3 addresses for notifications. This feature could be better complement and make smarter by having geolocation detection, where if a case happens 10-20km away, the user wouldnt be notified. Or an additional button beside “Accept” and “Decline”. It can sometime feel ethically and morally stress to decline a call, not because the users don’t want to help but is unable to because of distance and yet being notified.
2) On Submission of feedback, for email placeholder it says “Optional” yet when submitting an empty submission it says missing value. Please make this consistent.
Great potential, but can do more
Firstly, small issue, but can be implemented in future updates: not optimised for iPhone X. Crashes upon launch but resolved when reinstalled.
Secondly, would be great if responders are notified by the ETA for a preferred mode of transport (walking, bicycle, car/bike) rather than radius as a neighboring estate can be beyond the radius but a responder from my estate can definitely get there ahead of the EMS (more so on bicycle or car/bike).
There’s an alert but can’t open the app
There is an alert, but can’t open the app. It hangs at the first screen with “scdf” wording and then the app closed by itself after awhile.
