Message for the week. As of Saturday 1 July 2017, the New Zealand Fire Service has been renamed Fire and Emergency NZ (FENZ). So what does this mean for you? Urban and Rural Fire will come under one umbrella but this won’t affect you one bit. You won’t actually see anything noticeable in the short term but over time you will see fire trucks and uniforms rebranded.
Most importantly, it’s business as usual for all Brigades and fire fighters. When the siren goes off, we will still be there for our communities.
