THE CHIEF’S MESSAGE
Tamil Nadu Fire and Rescue Services is an emergency fire fighting and rescue services department with 7706 officers and men who are devoted to the service of the people 24 x 7 year after year. It is a great honour be the chief of our real heroes who risk their lives in order to save the lives of others.
In the year 2021 we attended 16809 fire calls and 57451 rescue calls. The extraordinary fire fighting feat in a chemical godown fire on 29.02.2020 at Madhavaram and other remarkable rescue from the debris of a building collapse in Mugalivakkam on 28.06.2014 are a testimony to the fire fighting skills and rescue capability of the officers and men of this force. The public too always availed any opportunity to be a Safety Volunteer and they actively assist the TNFRS in fire fighting and more importantly in creating awareness about fire safety.
I take this opportunity to congratulate all the officers and men of the department who have kept up the tradition of bravery in fire fighting in the true spirit of our motto “WE SERVE TO SAVE”.
Let us be ready to “Prevent & Prepare” rather than to “Repent and Repair”.
