Read the Day One Blueprint

The Day One Blueprint (634 downloads) conveys the story of what Fire and Emergency New Zealand is expected to look like, and be able to do, from its first day, 1 July 2017 – what must be ready to go, and how it will get there.


The Blueprint is clear that Day One is the beginning – not the end – of the FENZ story. There will still be a lot of work for FENZ and stakeholders to do after 1 July 2017 to create a truly unified fire service for New Zealand.
