The Brigade is the service arm of the organization which functions under the leadership of the Commissioner. Assistant Commissioners handling different operational areas assist the Commissioner at the Headquarters level. The Brigade operations at the District Level function under the leadership of District Commissioners.
Under the leadership of the Commissioner Dr. J.M. Nilam, the Brigade activities were strengthened. Thirty-one new Divisions were registered during the year with 984 new cadets.
The brigade members have done a remarkable service by providing their priceless service during the recent disaster created by the severe weather condition. Volunteers in Gampaha and Colombo districts’ units launched medical camps and cleaning campaigns in their areas.
