The road to becoming an SCDF DART officer
The Singapore Civil Defence Force’s (SCDF) Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team (DART) is an elite troop trained to handle complex rescue missions. On 7 June 2012, 16 officers took part in the 28-hour stringent selection test to earn a chance to join the DART ranks.

This is the tab worn only by a small group of highly-trained Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team (DART) officers from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF).
To join the ranks of this elite force, officers have to go through a gruelling 28-hour selection test and pass an intense 10-week training programme.

On 7 June 2012, 16 firefighters set out on that difficult road with the hope of qualifying for the DART course.

Only eight made the cut.

Check out this photo tribute of their challenging journey.
