|Greetings from Fire Chief
Toshio Ando (27th Fire Chief)
|I am Toshio Ando, the 27th Fire Chief of the Tokyo Fire Department (TFD).
I appreciate your special understanding and cooperation as we perform our daily fire safety services.
Tokyo has been preparing for the worst in anticipation of the “Tokyo earthquake” and catastrophic natural disasters, and enthusiastically for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 as well.
Tokyo citizens are now more concerned about their safety, and therefore expect us to do more to ensure their safety than ever before.
To reach the goal of a safer tomorrow, “Safe City,” we develop our fire rescue units’ skills. We recently established the Unified Task Forces as the latest elite unit. In addition, we promote high-level emergency medical services with sophisticated ambulance teams, enhance fire prevention measures, improve community disaster preparedness, and more. We try our best for the greater safety of Tokyo.
We continue to learn from both past disasters and our predecessors’ achievements, put our wisdom together, direct our utmost efforts toward our missions, and work at developing our organization into a body that a lot more Tokyo citizens can rely on more than in the past.
Your continued support and assistance would be greatly appreciated.
