The Board has decided to keep existing urban and rural boundaries for Day One of Fire and Emergency New Zealand. These boundaries will be reviewed by July 2020. 

For details on who from Fire and Emergency New Zealand is in control of an incident, refer to the interim M1 POP Command and control policy.

Boundary maps

Below are links to all urban and rural fire district maps, except:

  • urban boundaries defined in agreements under section 38 of the Fire Service Act 1975, and
  • certain areas of Maori land under Department of Conservation agreements that are to be excluded from rural boundaries.

Up-to-date maps for both of these will be released once reviewed and signed off. In the interim, any existing agreement for response or cover will continue.

You can also access these maps from SMART Map (external link) .
