This Movember, join us in shining a spotlight on men’s health - tackling prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and poor mental health - to ensure we’re looking after ourselves and the men in our lives.

Fire and Emergency is proud to be a regular participant in Movember to support greater awareness, understanding and action around these significant health issues.

The most important thing you can do this month is check in with yourself or check up on the men in your life. Get those regular assessments done with your health provider. Do it for yourself, do it for your mates, do it for your whānau.

Fire and Emergency is also committed to providing you with the support you need to remain in good health and has a variety of options available to help you and your whānau through challenges you may be facing. More information can be found on the Portal.

Get involved
If you’re keen to take things a step further, you may like to get involved in the Fire and Emergency Movember challenge(external link). Last year Fire and Emergency raised an impressive $52,000 and took out the First Responder challenge by some margin, raising over $20,000 more than our closest rival, New Zealand Defence Force.

You can go traditional and grow the mo’, you can make a mo’ve by running or walking 60km over the month, or you can ‘mo your own way’ and take on another challenge of your choice. There are plenty of ideas on the Movember website(external link).

This is a great opportunity to start a kōrero with your crew. 

Please send your pictures to We’ll then share your mo’ments with everyone!
