He previously served in the Singapore Civil Defence Force and the Ministry of Home Affairs for 17 years before being elected into Parliament in July 2020.

As Commander of the 3rd SCDF Division, he worked with a team of committed and creative first responders to foster a community more prepared for emergencies. Eric and his team launched a series of programmatic firsts, such as the Falconites’ Challenge 2017, the “Are We Ready?” series of community resilience activities, and the very first edition of TEDxSCDF. For his steadfast service, Eric was conferred the 2017 Pingat Kepujan (Commendation Medal) National Day Award.
