Proposed FENZ restructure will have dire consequences for the safety of the public and firefighters if it proceeds

Professional Career Firefighters could be under the command of non-qualified Chiefs who do not have any qualifications or training

Non-qualified or trained personnel in non-ranked positions can be deemed to be competent to respond

Today at midday FENZ released its proposed organisational restructure which plans to decimate the current rank and role structures in order to put non-career firefighters at the helm of operations. If this proposal goes ahead it will herald an era of the disestablishment of a professional career fire and emergency service resulting in dire consequences for your health and safety and the safety of the public.
