While we continue to maintain and improve our holiday homes for members, we appreciate this work can mean your chosen holiday home may be unavailable at the time you wish to take a break.
This is a great time to remind you that as a member of the NZ Firefighters Welfare Society, you also have access to many NZ Police holiday homes AND Army Leave Centres right around the country.
