(Officers and Fire-fighters) are asked to advise the secretary of the Wellington Local if they would be interested in a fixed term secondment to Paraparaumu Fire Station.
The positions would be on a Black Watch basis and the term could be 6 months at a time.
Hepatitis B Vaccinations
Members are asked to advise any of the Local Reps listed above whether they have had problems obtaining the Hepatitis B Vaccinations for the Fire Service recommended reimbursement of $80.00.
Recruits Riding Appliances
Members are further reminded that appliances should have at least one Firefighter riding in the back, who has, at least one years’ service and has
successfully completed a Phase 2 training course. There may be times when this is unattainable but they should be very far and few between in a brigade the size of Wellington.
This has been custom and practice for many years and it is important to maintain for the safety of all fire-fighters.
