Presented by Lingzi Media 玲子传媒
Based on real life events such as the collapse of Hotel New World and the Pulau Merlimau refinery fire, Frontline Rescue 《救灾前线》 comprises a collection of short stories by veteran civil defence officer Lee Chuan Low (李选楼). As Singapore’s first Chinese short story centred on disaster and crisis management, the book serves as a cherished record of significant events in Singapore history, while illuminating the unsurmountable spirit of human nature in face of adversity.
