LEUNG Wai-hung, Joseph,
Director of Fire Services
Welcome to the homepage of the Hong Kong Fire Services Department (FSD).
Our mission is to safeguard the people of Hong Kong by protecting their lives and property from fire and other calamities.
It is our calling to save those in distress and protect the community. To deliver our mission, we constantly perfect our work in firefighting, rescue, ambulance and fire protection. In the area of emergency ambulance services, we launched an enhanced post-dispatch advice service in recent years to provide comprehensive and appropriate first-aid guidance to callers of emergency ambulance services. The scheme has proven to be effective and gained public approval. In terms of fire prevention issues, on top of actively providing advice on fire safety measures, we also conduct proactive inspections of industrial buildings and old composite buildings and take enforcement actions against irregularities identified. Promotion of fire safety and emergency preparedness is another key focus of our work. With an aim to raise public awareness in the two aspects, we have been spreading the message through various means, including launching an official Facebook page for education and publicity, and organising a wide range of promotional and educational activities in different communities and campuses.
Humbled and encouraged by the warm recognition and support from the public, we promise to be at the forefront of protection and the last line of defense for Hong Kong, as we have always been. We will continue to go to great lengths in providing high quality service to the public and keep this city a safe place to live and work in.
This homepage sets out our vision, mission, organisation and performance pledges, and outlines our services for the public to get to know more about us and our work. Your comments and suggestions on our services are most welcome.
