Emergencies First Aid & Rescue (EFAR) started off as a partnership on 9th September 2002 by James Teo and Doris Ching. It is the passion of James to share his knowledge and skills he has gained while he was a Male nurse with School of Nursing followed by being a paramedic with Singapore Civil Defence Force.
Since then EFAR has been conducting first aid and CPR training. With our instructors’ background as paramedics and trainers in CDA (Civil Defence Academy) or/and SAF Medical Training Institute (SMTI), they are able to relate real life experience with the participants and let them understand the importance of first aid knowledge and skills.
