Happy International Firefighters’ Day Whakanuia Ngā Kaipatuahi to all our firefighters and all those who support them.

We hope everyone is taking some time today to celebrate their achievements – if you do, please send us photos that we can share.

We decided to ask some tamariki what they thought of firefighters and here is what they had to say(external link)

Tonight, the Sky City Tower will be lit up in the International Firefighters’ Day colours of red and blue as a way of celebrating and thanking you all.

It is also a way of remembering past firefighters who have died while serving our community and have dedicated their lives to protecting their communities.
