To safeguard both persons and property from fire and life safety hazards through education, investigation, emergency response and code application.
A Message from David Schafer, Fire Commissioner of theProvince of Manitoba
No matter where you travel in Manitoba there is a spirit of dedication, commitment and pride displayed by our Emergency Services. The ability to respond to the public in a time of need bonds all Emergency Service providers together.
The Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC) is a very diverse organization covering many aspects of Public Safety. Our website will provide you with information on each of our sections, which have their own unique set of priorities and goals. From Fire Investigations, Fire and Building Code application, to Emergency Response and Training, we believe our organization continues to meet the challenges of today's Emergency Services.
While each section is a valuable resource for information, I would like to highlight one in particular. The Manitoba Emergency Services College, which offers a full range of programs in all areas for fire and life safety education, firefighter training, building and fire inspector, rescue, hazardous materials response, EMS and many other areas related to public safety education, is incomparable in excellence. The College has a program that will meet your requirements whether it’s for an emergency services organization, industry or public member.
I welcome you to browse our website and encourage you to explore how the Office of the Fire Commissioner can be of assistance to you. Please, do not hesitate to contact us either by the telephone numbers provided throughout this site or by email. This organization maintains its focus in providing superior customer services. We look forward to any comments or inquiries that you may have.
Parents, children and educators, be sure to visit the Fire & Life Safety Education Section for fun fire safety tips and materials.
