The mission of the Mauritius Fire And Rescue Service is to make the Republic of Mauritius a safe place for all its citizens and visitors by minimising the risks of life loss, property destruction and environmental damage by fire and other emergency threats through enforcement of fire legislations, fire prevention education, and the provision of prompt and efficient fire and rescue services.
The fire service has been undergoing significant change to meet national objectives of improving safety through reduction of fire incidence and their destructive consequences, and through improvement of organisational efficiency. We thus continue to strive relentlessly for excellence in all sectors of our engagement to make the Republic of Mauritius a safe place to live, work and visit anytime and anywhere.
The main focus of this website is to promote better awareness and understanding among the public on the wide range of fire prevention work and emergency response services the Department provides to ensure the safety of our citizens. Fire prevention includes enforcement of fire protection measures in buildings, licensing of premises, fire safety education and community fire prevention work. Besides extinguishing fires, the Mauritius Fire and Rescue Service responds to a wide range of emergencies to rescue people involved in road traffic collisions or trapped under collapsed structures, to deal with flooding incidents, and reduce the risk from chemical spillages and other disasters.
This website will contribute to strengthen our communication with the general public and our collaborative partnership with our various stakeholders to reduce the threats to life caused by the different types of fire hazards we may find in our living or working environment.
Everyone, from the ordinary citizen, employer, business promoter to the building professional, can find valuable and helpful information that they can use to mitigate those risks and improve the safety and wellbeing of all the people, including themselves, on whom their action can have an impact.
