Volunteer Fire Brigade functions cannot be held in levels 3 and 4.
Volunteer Fire Brigade functions can be held in level 2. However, these must be held off-Station and in line with Hospitality rules - https://covid19.govt.nz/activities/cafes-bars-restaurants-and-night-clubs/#cafes,-restaurants-and-bars-at-alert-level-2
Fire and Emergency SDPPPs reflect that no functions can be held on station in order to align with the other safety measures to mitigate against the spread of Covid through a whole brigade. Minimising the number of visitors to stations enables FENZ to do this.
