Australasian Firefighters Champs
In 2003, the inaugural National Firefighters Championship, encompassing teams from each Australian state and territory as well as New Zealand, was held in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales. The biennial event was subsequently hosted by Queensland on the Gold Coast in 2005 and again in Lakes Entrance, Victoria in 2007. In 2009, the event has been re-branded as the “Australasian Firefighter Championships” and hosted by New Zealand for the first time in Rotorua.
Four New Zealand teams have been selected to represent the country at the 2011 Australasian Firefighter Championship.
Eight New Zealand teams were selected by the UFBA to represent the country in the Australasian Firefighters Championship, hosted in Rotorua on 17th & 18th October. And each of those eight teams put in an exceptional effort at the event, which comprised a total of 30 teams.
