|Greetings from Fire Chief
Kenichi Murakami (26th Fire Chief)
|I am Kenichi Murakami, the 26th Fire Chief of the Tokyo Fire Department (TFD).
I deeply appreciate your special understanding and cooperation in our performing our daily fire and life safety services.
As a fire and emergency services provider, the TFD has various missions to fulfill. For example, we need to create and carry out the safety measures for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, continue to tackle natural disasters such as the localized heavy rains caused by the recent weather changes, prepare to respond to the serious earthquake which could hit Tokyo at any moment, deal with the ever-increasing request for ambulance service, etc. Tokyo citizens are now concerned about their safety more than ever, and therefore expect us to do more to ensure their safety than ever before.
To reach the goal of a safer tomorrow, that is, “Safe City Tokyo” and also for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, the TFD keeps on stepping up fire rescue units’ skills, community disaster preparedness, emergency medical services, and so on. The TFD does its best for the greater safety of Tokyo.
We thus prepare for every possible disaster, make our utmost effort to protect lives and property, and work at developing our organization into a body that the citizens of Tokyo can rely on more than in the past. Your support and assistance would be greatly appreciated.
