Kōrero means a conversation. This is precisely what Fire and Emergency’s ELT aims to have with our volunteers at this Thursday’s Kōrero session.

The Kōrero session is one of three taking the place of the UFBA’s annual conference. The ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic meant an in person event had to be shelved.

Our ELT and Board Chair, Rebecca Keoghan, will be discussing a raft of relevant and topical updates across all business branches. This includes info about mandatory vaccinations, the Behaviour and Conduct Office, what we’re doing to support the development and training of our volunteers and what’s happening in fleet, our investment in new stations as well as a host of other of other information.

We’d love as many people as possible to watch our session on Thursday. It starts at 7pm and is open to everyone to view online. Simply follow the information on the home page of www.ufba.org.nz(external link)(external link) on Thursday and you’ll be directed to join the live presentation.

To ensure there’s a true opportunity to engage, there’ll be multiple points for people to ask questions on the night. If you can’t wait, and have something you want to ask in advance feel free by emailing engagementandpartnerships@fireandemergency.nz.

The format follows the Kōrero sessions held last year instead of the Conference – a series of evening Kōrero sessions to engage with UFBA’s members and provide them useful information and insights.

Our session is the second of the Kōrero series. The first was Nigel Latta’s last week talking about Post Traumatic Stress. The final session will be Sir Graham Henry talking about leadership next week.

If you can’t watch the Kōrero session on the night, no problem. The recording will be available afterwards on the UFBA website and on our Portal. We’ll also provide some follow-up information after our session, including the list of Q&A.

We hope you’ll join us, virtually, for this event. If you’ve got any other questions about the Kōrero series please send an email.
