The group undertaking the review into the Tasman fires have asked for a list of Union members who were deployed to the Tasman Fires and would like to be interviewed about their experiences.

Can any members who were deployed to Tasman Fires and would like to participate to email the union office wellington@nzpfu.org.nz indicating they would like to participate in the interview process. We will collate those wanting to be involved and provide them to the Review Group.

Participation would be useful if members have information or concerns .that may be useful to improving the outcomes and response of future fires.

In unity,
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
