The exhaust fume management programme is now ahead of schedule with another 67 urban volunteer fire stations having exhaust fume solutions implemented throughout the 16/17 financial year. These installations continue to assist with the mitigation of risks associated with exhaust fumes from fire service vehicles. In some cases, the risks are minor but the programme does apply the relevant solutions to the relevant risk.

Fire and Emergency NZ have now procured an installation provider, who will complete the remaining urban volunteer fire stations exhaust fume management solutions nationally in advance of the 2020 programme timeline. The Fire and Emergency NZ on-line portal provides updates and information on what solutions are being put in place.

Out of 439 urban fire stations, Fire and Emergency NZ now have 220 urban fire stations (50%) that meet the appliance bay ventilation requirements, 16 urban fire stations (4%) currently in installation and 203 urban fire stations (46%) to be completed.
