HomeTeamNS is a merger between the former Singapore Civil Defence Association for National Servicemen (CDANS) and the Singapore Police Association for National Servicemen (SPANS). As the Civil Defence and Police Forces have to work hand in hand to safeguard Singapore’s security, the merger between CDANS and SPANS creates a shared environment for NSmen from both Forces to foster better relations. HomeTeamNS was officially launched by Home Affairs Minister Mr Wong Kan Seng on 24 April 2005.
Following the merger between the two Associations, a new name – HomeTeamNS, has been adopted for the new Association. The name had been chosen to reinforce the Home Team identity as well as to bring the Police NSmen, Civil Defence NSmen and their families closer to the larger Home Team community.
HomeTeamNS has a total of six Clubhouses catered for the varying needs of its members and their families. The Clubhouses are conveniently located at Bukit Batok, Balestier, Pasir Ris, Sembawang, Smith Street and UE Square.
Designed by HomeTeamNS member, SC/SGT Teo Chin Poa Arron, the integration of CDANS and SPANS is reflected by the 2 colours of blue and orange which depicts the aim of achieving better cohesion and solidarity between the NSmen of SCDF and SPF. The acronym “NS” in the flame symbolises the Home Team spirit of energy, dedication and undying commitment that the NSmen serving our nation possess. Blue rectangular box background with the word “Team” reflects the strong foundation of the association with the merger of both CDANS and SPANS. Lastly, “Home” represents the primary role of the Civil Defence and Police NSmen in ensuring a safe and secure environment for Singaporeans to live in.
To bond all Home Team NSmen and honour them for their role in ensuring a safe and secure Singapore.
The Pride of Home Team NSmen and their families.
