These Protocols have addressed the concerns the Union raised with the Fire Service in relation to the Health and Safety and well-being of our members.

The DCFO of North Shore Fire District has been appointed a Co-DCFO of Silverdale.

The Union is currently working with the Fire Service on the amalgamation of the Silverdale Fire District into the North Shore Fire District.

The Union is also working with the Fire Service on the re-building of Silverdale, which should start in the next two to three months. As a result of the scale of work involved, the station will be relocated during the construction phase.

The Union’s position is that when the relocation occurs, 24/7 will be introduced to Silverdale.
