In June 2005, the Co-operative of SCDF Employees Ltd (COSEM) was registered under the Co-operative Societies Act of Singapore with a primary mandate to create secondary career opportunities for retired and former personnel of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) – a uniformed government organisation that provides fire safety, firefighting, rescue and emergency medical services to the population of Singapore.

With the aim to fulfil its primary mandate, COSEM incorporated COSEM Safety & Security Services Pte Ltd in September 2006. To date, the company has more than 190 employees of which more than 70% are retired or former SCDF personnel. From the company’s humble beginnings, we have grown to become a leading emergency response training provider of fire safety and medical courses, a globally recognised consultancy provider for emergency preparedness and response, a trusted emergency response services provider for both public and private sectors as well as an innovative product and technology enabler for both safety and security sectors.
