Today FRM Butt has ordered the removal of Papatoetoe 348 from Region 1 and sent it South to Wellington.
This will mean that we, as firefighters, will not have the support of this vehicle and important resource.
See attached instruction from a previous Fire Region Manager and AM Cocker’s quotes in the Fire and Rescue.
REMEMBER, you will not have the ability to perform certain tasks that you have relied on this appliance for.
YOU are not at fault, Region Management has yet again, taken away vital tools from us and the PUBLIC!
