Signing of CooperationChief Executive Rhys Jones signed a Statement of Cooperation with NZ Firefighters’ Welfare Society (NZFFWS) Chair Keith Nixon on Thursday 8 February, signalling the two organisations’ commitment to the welfare and wellbeing of Fire and Emergency personnel and their families.

The Statement of Cooperation outlines how the two organisations will work together.

“Fire and Emergency NZ recognises the value provided by the NZFFWS to our people. As the majority of their work is done voluntarily we’re very appreciative of the contribution they make as an independent support agency and so I am very pleased to sign this statement.”

The NZ Firefighters Welfare Society offers membership to all those who are or who have been associated with Fire and Emergency NZ. Specifically, membership is open to volunteer, Urban, Rural and Career Firefighters, management, clerical and support staff.
