The tragic events that have occurred in Hamilton yesterday afternoon have taken the life of our member, Senior Station Officer Derek Lovell.

The Union Executive and all members & firefighters around New Zealand pass on their condolences to those families involved.

Members best wishes are with six of Derek’s colleagues who are being treated in Waikato and Middlemore Hospitals.

The Union’s thoughts and prayers are directed to those members and their families at this time.

To ensure the safety of all firefighters, the NZ Professional Firefighters Union is demanding an immediate increase in the number of fire appliances sent to all Private Fire Alarm and Privately Monitored Fire Alarm calls received by the NZ Fire Service.

More information will follow.
