Your suggestions are of crucial importance in enhancing our services. Suggestions can be your observations or comments on your service experience or the work of the EOC in general.
It is important for our staff members to know whether they have exceeded and how to further excel in their service delivery. We are thankful for your encouragement and very much count on your compliments to our staff and/or our organisation to help foster a quality service culture.
If you are dissatisfied with our services, such as politeness and timeliness in our responses, you can make a complaint.
You can contact us in one of the following ways:

To enable your complaint to be processed expeditiously, please provide us with the following information:
- Your name and contact information (Please provide at least one way of contacting you, such as email address, phone number or correspondence address)
- Details of your complaint (e.g. description of the incident(s) causing your dissatisfaction, date(s), persons involved in the incident(s), etc.)
- Copies of relevant supporting documents, if any
We stand ready to look into and follow up on complaints substantiated with sufficient information. You are encouraged to lodge your complaint as soon as practicable, say, within one year from the occurrence of the incident(s).

- We will thoroughly examine the relevant facts to ascertain whether the complaint is substantiated. In the process, we may contact you for further information as and when necessary.
- We will endeavour to provide you with a full response (including our findings) within two months, and where applicable, inform you of what we have done / will do in rectifying the areas in need of improvement.
(Note: There are occasions that, due to special circumstances, some complaints may call for a longer processing time. In such cases, we will inform you in writing the reasons within one month, and provide you with a full response as soon as practicable.)
