The Chandigarh Fire and Emergency Services is the fire brigade wing of the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation.[1]

As of 2012, the department has seven fire stations across the city and plans are afoot to build six more.[2]

In 2009, a proposal was mooted in the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation to allow women into the fire services.[3]

The department also sets up temporary fire stations during festive seasons to ensure that no mishaps occur.[4]
