NZPFU postpones function commemorating 40 years of women career firefighters

Due to the Auckland borders remaining in place we have decided to further postpone the NZPFU to commemorate 40 years of professional career women firefighters.

The function was to take place on the 12th October 2021 in Mount Maunganui with a special presentation to be made to recognise the ongoing contribution of women to the firefighting profession.

We are still hoping to hold the event this year and will notify members when a new date has been determined.

In unity,
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
