Abstract: The threat of terrorism had evolved over the years and sent strong signals to everyone that the threat of terrorism can strike to almost any nation in the world, regardless of its people, economic wealth or political stability. Singapore envisions itself as a strong nation distinguished by its excellence in homefront security and safety. To achieve this vision, it appears to have developed informational and practical programmes specifically centering on these knowledge.These programmes also tries to address some current deficiencies and add coherence to the nation's approach to counter terrorism training by customizing the knowledge appropriate to the public as well as teaches applied and relevant skills. The September 11 attack on America drew into sharp focus the need to understand, prepare and counter potential terror threats.
