The National Heritage Board (NHB) launched its second exhibition under the “Resilience Through Heritage” series on 04 December 2012, focusing on what was considered Singapore’s biggest and most devastating fire – the Bukit Ho Swee Fire in 1961.
The travelling exhibition on the Bukit Ho Swee Fire outline the details of the fire, the scale of destruction, the fire-fighting and relief efforts of the agencies involved, the aid rendered by the community, as well as the resettlement and redevelopment efforts undertaken by the government.
Curated by NHB with support from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and the Heritage Development Unit of Ministry of Home Affairs, the exhibition feature a re-creation of a burnt housing structure, which incorporates exhibition panels, photographs, artefacts from SCDF that were used during the Bukit Ho Swee Fire, as well as two multimedia stations showing two different video clips about the fire.
