Equipment and Logistics Working Group - membership representative needed

Issue date:

A membership rep is needed to join Fire and Emergency’s Equipment and Logistics working group. This group will address a range of matters, including but not limited to, current tender exercises.

There is substantial work and change occurring within Fire and Emergency’s Equipment and Logistics Team. Views and perspectives will be needed on a range of matters including equipment management, current equipment and logistics issues and decisions, procurement, rollouts and deployment.

This will be an important and demanding role. A technical support group will be established to share the workload and consultation with the wider membership can held if required.

The working group will give Fire and Emergency a permanent point of contact for Equipment and Logistics managers to liaise directly with UFBA as the primary volunteer sector stakeholder. A wide range of stakeholders will be involved:

  • Service Delivery Response Capability
  • UFBA
  • FECA
  • NZPFU
  • NZ Fire & Rescue Commanders Association (NZFRCA)
  • Training
  • Fleet
  • Rural
  • Safety and Wellbeing
  • National Communications
  • Region Business Support
  • Procurement

If you are interested in representing membership, please send through a brief outline of your experience and knowledge in this area to memberservices@ufba.org.nz by Tuesday 6 April.
