Members should and will remember the devastating and tragic events 5 years ago in Christchurch – lives lost, property destroyed, major trauma and heroic actions by many, including our members, not only in Christchurch but from around the country.

5 Years on and –

  • members still working out of and living in “temporary accommodation”
  • not one of our Stations rebuilt – in fact not even the Foundations commenced.

This simply adds to the stress and hardship members in Christchurch face every day.

Fire Service Senior Managers are well aware of the Unions outrage at the ridiculous length of time to make any progress at all. Local have written directly to Paul Baxter to express this outrage at the delays and strong solidarity with their Christchurch colleagues. Management has been and will continue to be reminded of and pressured to act to rebuild the damaged Christchurch Stations.

Five years on – and not one Foundation commenced.

Will it take longer to rebuild one Christchurch Station than it took to defeat Hitler and Nazi Germany? – extraordinary.
