Congratulations to Queen’s Honours recipients 2019

  Posted on 5th June 2019 by Nick Cottrell in UFBA blog, UFBA News

We were delighted to see among this year’s queen’s Birthday Honours recipients the following honourees for services to Fire and Emergency NZ and Community:

This is the first time the United Fire Brigades Association has been directly mentioned and follows nominations made for a number of years for those who represent us.

Bryan, like many of our past presidents, maintains a role and commitment to the UFBA lasting many years beyond the initial tenure. Formerly a member of our Technical Panel, Bryan has provided personal support to local members involved in conflicts as one of our reliable and dedicated advocacy support volunteers. A UFBA Life Member, Bryan is also a Trustee of the UFBA Benevolent Fund which supports firefighters and their families in times of financial hardship.

UFBA CEO Bill Butzbach says, ‘It is in these roles, hidden behind the scenes, where people like Bryan and all the other deserved recipients achieve so much in supporting their communities. It’s crucial that we honour and highlight the often intangible impact their years of devotion brings to people around them, for without them the world would be a bleaker place.’

A very heartfelt congratulations to all recipients from the UFBA.
