On 18 December 2021, Fire and Emergency was called to a vegetation fire in Waiharara, Northland. Since that afternoon we have been working alongside the Department of Conservation, our forestry partners, NZDF, Ngai Takoto iwi and the Kaimaumau community to contain the fire and prevent any loss of life or damage to property.

Don’t be surprised if firefighters respond when you call for ambulance

In the lead up to Restart a Heart day on 16 October, we are working with St John and Wellington Free Ambulance to raise awareness so the public are not surprised if firefighters turn up to a medical emergency when they have called for an ambulance. We are reassuring people our firefighters are trained to respond to such situations and they are there to help.
