The Local wishes to show it’s appreciation to those who were able to attend one of the meetings on Monday.

Hopefully, members were able to understand the seriousness of the situation coming down the line and will remember to spread the word to those that weren’t able to make a meeting.

We encourage members to start having conversations around the mess table about those submissions, and discuss whether you want to put in individual ones or Watch ones (or both).

Name, rank, years of service and the courses, experience, hurdles etc., you had to do to get there.

If you have any examples of whether, as a career Professional Firefighter, your skills and experience helped to make an incident run smoothly and get people home safely, add those in.

Make sure you all have a read of at least sections 7 and 8 of the consultation document. (but more is better). Additional copies available on the portal.

FENZ is putting on information meetings (NOT consultation) Monday 30 September at City (1000), Takapuna (1900) and Tuesday 1 October at Papatoetoe (0900).

We encourage you to attend these and ask questions about anything from this proposal. Be respectful, but be direct, and record any answers you get.

Any questions, please ask one of your Committee members.
