Hi everyone,

Welcome to the first edition of the Fire and Emergency NZ Update for 2018. Each month this update will bring you news and stories from around our organisation, as well as integration progress

Urban and rural crews have been kept busy since our last edition responding to a number of large fires, floods and other incidents this summer.

These incidents have demonstrated the difference Fire and Emergency is already making in terms of our ability to pull many different functions together into one cohesive team - so well done to everyone involved in the response, coordination, and advance preparation that contributed to the successful resolution of these incidents. 

This Update features stories on the key features our organisation will have in the future (the Operating Model), an update on the pilot Local Advisory Committee (LAC) in Hawke’s Bay, and an update on the challenges of responding to a large vegetation fire in one of New Zealand’s most remote locations – the Chatham Islands.

If you have questions or feedback about any of these stories, you can email the team at myvoice@fireandemergency.nz or me directly at ce@fireandemergency.nz
