We are still seeing occasions of pumps disengaging when the primer is operated. This is not acceptable.

Users are advised to perform daily checks on the pump including activating the primer to ensure that it does not cause the pump to disengage.

If the pump disengages, contact the service provider without delay to remedy this fault.

Send a courtesy email to terry.bird@fireandemergency.nz so that we have overview across our Local.

Availability of Relief Appliances

Members need to be aware there is a contingency plan to use Type 3 appliances from existing fleet in Areas 3, 4, and 5 when no relief appliances are available.

Recommended procedure:

  1. The appliance you are using or accepting has faults that require repair.
  2. You are advised that there are no relief appliances available.
  3. Contact the FENZ On-call Executive and advise them of the problem.
  4. The FENZ On-call Executive will find a suitable Type 3 appliance.

Do not accept appliances with faults.  They can lead to significant failures.
