FIREFIGHTERS ARE ONLY TO BE RESPONDED TO PURPLE CALLS

Any extension of medical response will only be by NZPFU agreement

On 17 October 2019 FENZ was issued with a Health and Safety Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN) requiring professional career Firefighters to be only responded to purple calls. The NZPFU had been informed that FENZ had agreed, endorsed and signed a new Memorandum of Understanding which enabled St John to deploy Firefighters to other calls where St John perceived the Firefighters could “add value”.
