Support from the Institute of Fire Engineers International
We would like to share with members this message of support we received from Mark Chubb, Chairman of the Board of the Institute of Fire Engineers International (UK) and an Executive Member of the Institute of Fire Engineers, USA Branch.
"My thoughts are with you and the entire Fire and Emergency NZ whanau as you deal with the devastation from TC Gabrielle, most especially the situation in Muriwai. The global fire and emergency services community shares your grief and admires the strength and resilience displayed by so many volunteers these past few days. We stand with you and honour their service and sacrifice."
Thank you Mark.
The international community are with us through this tragic time for Aotearoa New Zealand.
