Dragon Ball Wiki

Goku's Fire Brigade (悟空の消防隊 Gokū no Shōbō-tai) is a ten-minute public service video about fire safety, which aired in Japan on June 8, 1988. This video features the main Dragon Ball characters having jobs as firefighters and Bulma living in a new apartment with Scratch.

The story begins with two young children playing with fireworks, until one of them lands in what looks like a garbage bin, starting a fire with explosions that could destroy the whole building, which a nearby Goku notices, and puts out with a hose. He warns the children never to play with fire, and have an adult around when with fireworks, and he reveals he is a volunteer fireman.

Afterwards, Goku, Krillin, Master Roshi, and Yamcha (all working as volunteer firemen) put out a fire in a home, with Roshi explaining ways fires can start.


Goku's Fire Brigade's placement within the series' timeline is unknown, but it can be placed during Goku's three years of training before the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament, as Krillin and Yamcha are training under Roshi and accomplishing various tasks as part of the Turtle School training during this period.
