About Us

Welcome to the webpages of Cork City Fire Brigade. 

The Cork City Fire Brigade has a proud tradition of Service to the people of Cork City and its environs since 1877. Since then Cork City Fire Brigade has seen many changes in it's structure, strength and resources. The development of the Brigade has closely mirrored that of Cork City, its culture being shaped by its experience and tradition.  

Today we are an organisation of professional people working as part of a team, dedicated to providing a multi skilled approach not alone to the areas of fire fighting, but also to rescue and fire safety engineering. We are available for emergency response to the Community 24 hours a day seven days a week. Hopefully you will never need us, but if you call us we will be there.  

Our role is changing from response to mitigation, our focus in the future will be to work with the community in the reduction of hazards and prevention of emergency incidents. We will also maintain and enhance our ability to respond to any emergency which may occur.  

I hope you will enjoy your online visit with us.  

John Ryan,
Chief Fire Officer.
