The Fire and Emergency New Zealand Transition project has been set up to establish Fire and Emergency New Zealand, an amalgamation of the New Zealand Fire Service, the National Rural Fire Authority, 12 enlarged rural fire districts and 26 territorial authority rural fire authorities.
The project, through its workstreams, will set up a single, amalgamated organisation from 1 July 2017. Find out what’s changing and what’s not here.
Over the following three years, it will cement further changes to build a modern, nationwide service integrating what are currently separate urban, rural, volunteer and paid firefighting forces. The project will also set up local advisory committees to ensure Fire and Emergency New Zealand is linked strongly to the communities it serves and protects.
