THE CHIEF’S MESSAGE

Tamil Nadu Fire and Rescue Services is an emergency fire fighting and rescue services department with 343 fire stations and 3 rescue stations spread over the State of Tamil Nadu. There are 7599 officers and men who are in the service of the people 24 x 7 all the days of the year.

 

Started as a wing of the Madras City Police, and later as part of the State Police Department, the Fire and Rescue Services Department has become an autonomous fire fighting department in 1967. This is a great honour to be the chief of the action heroes who risk their lives in order to save others.

 

In the year 2019 Tamil Nadu Fire and Rescue Services attended 25,068 fire calls and 26,392 rescue calls, the latter of which is increasingly prominent in the recent times. The firemen rose up to the challenge of the time, a rescue station has come up in Marina where 18 firemen trained in rescue swimming are deployed.

 

The extraordinary fire fighting in Madhavaram Chemical Godown fire on 29.02.2020 and the remarkable rescue from the debris of building collapse in Mugalivakkam on 28.06.2014 are testimony of the fire fighting skills and rescue capability of the officers and men of the force.

 

The regular recruitment of Firemen and their rigorous training helped to keep the force young and active. The public too have an opportunity to be a Safety Volunteer to assist the TNFRS in fire fighting and in creating awareness about fire safety.

 

I take this opportunity to congratulate the officers and men of the department who have kept up the tradition of bravery in fire fighting in the true spirit of the motto “We Serve To Save”.
