Minimising contact at Taiharuru fire

On 25 August, Fire and Emergency responded to a vegetation fire started by the hot exhaust of a car that drove through long grass in a paddock adjoining Taiharuru Road, Whangarei. Initially a response of two pumps and a water tanker from three stations, Whangarei Heads, Onerahi and Hikurangi were dispatched.

Supporting families of our volunteers

08/06/2018 | Volunteer | Communication Centres, National, Ngā Tai ki te Puku (previously Region 2), Te Hiku (previously Region 1), Te Ihu (previously Region 4), Te Kei (previously Region 5), Te Ūpoko (previously Region 3)

Families play an important role in supporting our volunteers. Therefore, Fire and Emergency has created a Families of Volunteers brochure to help families, particularly those with a newer volunteer, understand what to expect, how life may change for them and how they, as a family, can be more involved.
