Mission Statement

To safeguard both persons and property from fire and life safety hazards through education, investigation, emergency response and code application.

Welcome to the Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC). The OFC is a diverse organization that plays a strong role in public safety and education. We are responsible for fire and building safety, emergency response, determining cause and origin of fires, and various types of technical equipment safety such as elevators, boilers and pressure vessels, and gas burning devices throughout the Province of Manitoba.

Take a look through the website which contains information on our six sections: Manitoba Emergency Services College - Education and Training, Codes and Standards, Operations, Inspection and Technical Services, Emergency Response and Administrative and Support Services.

Sparky the fire safety dog is directing people exiting buildings which looks like they're practicing their fire escape plan.

NFPA has officially announced "Not every hero wears a cape - PLAN and PRACTISE your ESCAPE!" as the theme for Fire Prevention Week, October 6 - 12. 2019. In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy. Visit Fire Prevention Week for additional resources.

Please make fire and life safety a part of your every day routine.
