The Mission

The Brigade is founded on the mottos of Valour, Abnegation & Sacrifice it is geared to “Kill The Fire Before It Kills”. The Statutory duty of the brigade is to save lives and property in case of fire/disaster and the main purpose is to help those in distress. Nevertheless, in the interest of public welfare, special services, which involve lifesaving or rescue operations, humanitarian services and services urgently necessary in the public interest, are rendered. These services cover a wide range of incidents such as house collapses, train and motor accidents, drowning accidents, tree collapses, earth quake, oil and acid spillages etc. People sometimes delay calling the Brigade because they think the fire is too small or they can extinguish it easily themselves or someone has already dialed 101 Play it safe! If you see a fire, howsoever small, call the Brigade without hesitation, it costs you nothing and you may save a life and minimize national loss.
