Members will be aware that Fire Region Manager Butt recently removed or reduced aerial appliances from CBD turnouts. The Union opposed this and continued to fight for the response to remain unchanged.

On Friday 9 March this issue was brought to a head with F.R.M. Butt. We believed that F.R.M.Butt’s advisors had supplied him with misinformation and generally bad advice in terms of aerial appliances and risk related to running an emergency service in Auckland.

The Union maintained this and we believed that F.R.M. Butt’s decision and order would be rescinded.

The unfortunate fire in Quay Street, Auckland City, in the early hours of Saturday morning cemented the Union’s position and by lunchtime Saturday, F.R.M. Butt rescinded his order.

Members will be advised of further outcomes as they arise.
