NZ Fire Service
The New Zealand Fire Service is comprised of eight different regions with around 400 stations and 8,000 firefighters spread throughout the country.
The nature of the emergencies we attend are as varied as the people who call for us. Our communities rely on our people being professionally prepared and capable to respond whenever they are called upon.
In the past year there were around 63,000 incidents attended by the Fire Service, but there's more to us than responding to emergencies; firefighters spend time helping our communities prevent unwanted fires by delivering education programmes, working with building owners, and undertaking other community focused work.
Our vision is to work with communities to protect what they value and our mission is to reduce the incidence and consequence of fire and to provide a professional response to other emergencies.
