We established the first seven Local Advisory Committees (LACs) in June last year, and are now recruiting new members into two of these committees - our Chatham Islands and Tairāwhiti LACs.

LACs were set up to strengthen our connection with communities. Going forward, their advice will inform our planning, and help us better support communities to reduce risk, prepare for and respond to emergencies, and recover quickly when they happen.

Our leaders on the Chatham Islands and Tairāwhiti will begin engaging with local communities to promote the opportunity to join our LACs.  

If you know people in your community that might be interested, please encourage them to find out more on www.fireandemergency.nz/LACs(external link).

Nominations close on 15 August 2021.
