Here you will find information on your Marlborough Kaikoura Fire and Emergency authority and how to protect yourself, your family; your neighbours and your business from the threat of rural wildfire
To celebrate National Volunteer Week, we’re saying a huge cheers to our volunteers who are ready to respond to emergencies 24/7, 365 days every year. They’re part of our nationwide team of 14,000 which includes career firefighters, trainers, our communication centres, and admin and support staff.
Being available to help keep their communities safe can mean missed dinners, good night stories to the kids, birthdays, and other personal commitments. ‘Thanks for the moments you’ve missed’, not only to all our volunteers but also to their whānau, employers, supporters and those who work alongside them, making it possible for our volunteers to do the great work they do.
Thank you again and have a good week.
If you live or own property in a rural area or on the urban–rural interface, you are part of a community that has a responsibility to manage the risk of fires on your property.
