We once again honour our volunteer firemen and fire women who have served the community through another year at the Annual Honours night on the 20th of September.
In addition to our operational duties, it has been a busy and succesful time getting the message to the community about fire/smoke alarms and installing them throughout the community.
Our 50th celebration was a memorable and joyful event with stories going back fifty years, distinguished guests from various fire service orginsations, our local Member of Parliament and an historic attendance of all three fire chiefs and their wives.
Over 50 years, this team of men and women have had a real commitment to serving Tairua, but that's only part of the story. None of this would have been possible without the support, encouragement and heart of the people of Tairua. Thank you Tairua!
Have a look at a snapshot of our history, some of our activities and get an overview into what our firefighters do for fun including a big thank you to the community that supports us.
For an emergency right now, dial 111 NOW.
