We are all responsible for ensuring we protect people’s information – this includes people’s names, contact details, photos, or involvement in an incident as a victim or a responder.
Over the past three months Fire and Emergency have been delivering fire safety modules at the FMG Young Farmer of the Year Regional Finals.
As you’ll know, these days firefighters do so much alongside fighting fires. Attending motor vehicle crashes is a big part of what we do and that means we see the harsh reality of what can happen when things go wrong on our roads.
We deal with a wide range of personal information and data on a daily basis. Much of this information is about our people or people in our communities and it’s important to ensure we protect the information we collect.
This week we are celebrating New Zealand Sign Language Week at Fire and Emergency and we want everyone to give it a go.
Today was a special day for five of our people. Murray Binning (Kumeu), Wayne Martin (Kawakawa), Paul Wilkins (Murchison), Bill Harris (Clinton), and Gina Chaffey-Aupouri (Ruatōria) all received their Royal Honours from Governor General, Dame Cindy Kiro at Government House.
I wish all our firefighters a happy International Firefighters’ Day/Whakanuia Ngā Kaipatuahi.
Happy International Firefighters’ Day Whakanuia Ngā Kaipatuahi!
