Membership

Since its inception in 1987 we have focused on helping firefighter's in New Zealand and their families.
The NZ Firefighters Welfare Society is a member of the Associated Agencies group of Fire and Emergency New Zealand.
Members of the Associated Agencies offer their members various benefits and in most cases these benefits are available to other members of Fire and Emergency New Zealand.

The Associated Agencies also includes Fire and Emergency New Zealand, Firesuper, NZ Firefighters Credit Union, United Fire Brigades Association, NZ Professional Firefighters Union, New Zealand Executive Fire Officers Society and the Sports Council.
