Our volunteers’ employers who allow our volunteers to respond to call-outs make it possible for us to keep our communities safe.
Recognising our employers
Every day, businesses and organisations across New Zealand support Fire and Emergency New Zealand by allowing and supporting their employees to respond to call-outs. Employers are essential to ensuring we can continue to keep our communities safe.
We’re committed to increasing public awareness of the contribution these employers and self-employed volunteers make.
We have a programme of work to promote and recognise our employers. Check these out below.
Our ‘Proud Employer’ mark makes it possible for employers to show their local community they’re part of our support crew.
Our ‘Proud Employer’ nationwide campaign will help New Zealand communities recognise businesses and organisations that support us, as a part of our support crew.
Check out this year's Proud Employer video, and download our posters and social media posts to use on your brigade pages.
Make sure you’ve registered your business if you are self-employed or your employer as a member of the Fire and Emergency support crew.
Read about the annual 'Thank you to employers' which we publish in local newspaper.
Make sure your brigade has up-to-date signage on trucks and at the station that lists the support of local businesses.
