MAP report following member consultation on head torches

Issue date:
Topic:

We have compiled a report of feedback from the recent head torches issue posed with the Membership Advisory Panel (MAP). In mid-July, Takaka Volunteer Fire Brigade approached the UFBA to seek the MAP's agreement to consult with UFBA members on:

  • Whether Fire and Emergency NZ operational personnel should be issued with a standard helmet torch for use in all emergencies; and if so,
  • To ask for recommendations for a suitable torch.
