How to Join

The UFBA supports, represents and unites fire and rescue personnel throughout New Zealand.

All brigades and rural fire forces are welcome as UFBA members - our membership consists of urban, rural, industrial and defence brigades.

We are here to support you in the important work you are doing for your community.

Annual subscription is paid by the brigade and once your brigade joins all the services are available to the individuals (called 'enrolled members').

If your brigade or rural fire force isn't a registered UFBA member, get in touch with us to find out how to join. Please contact:
