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.

Keep Fire Safety in Mind as Temperatures Drop!

The Office of the Fire Commissioner is urging everyone to keep fire safety in mind as the temperatures turn colder.

We often see more home fires during the winter months due to heating equipment and appliances. People need to pay close attention to potential fire hazards such as fireplaces, furnaces, chimneys and vents, and space heaters.

The following brochures are safety tips designed to help you and your family stay safe during the colder months.
