The Phase 2 Blueprint
The Phase 2 Blueprint is the high level plan covering the second stage of establishing Fire and Emergency New Zealand. This is the integration phase and starts on 1 July 2017 and ends three years later in June 2020.
Integration follows the amalgamation of 40 organisations into one fire service on 1 July 2017. This phase will see the integration of rural and urban systems, processes and tools, to build a single organisation and lay the foundations for unification from 2020.
