The FENZ Story - The real work has begun

  • Bulletin posted: 2nd Feb 2017

We are five months from the start of Fire and Emergency NZ when 40 organisations amalgamate into one. There will be a lot happening over these five months and I understand you will have a range of questions about exactly what Fire and Emergency NZ will mean for you. 
As we wrap up the information gathering and high-level planning phase, and move into detailed planning and preparation for implementation, and decisions are made, the information available to you will increase - through meetings, your leaders, in print and online. This means Day One - and what you need to know to prepare for Day One - will become clearer. 
Over the past few months the Transition Project Team has been focused on gathering information, particularly across rural – currently made up of 38 different organisations and the National Rural Fire Authority (NRFA). This information provides us with better understanding of current assets, volunteers and employees who work across both fire and other council business, IT systems, the cost of delivering rural services… the list goes on. For the NZFS, knowing this detail is just as important, but has been a little easier, as it is already one organisation with mainly centralised corporate functions and systems to work with.
The information gathering process highlights both the scale and implication of what the amalgamation means for New Zealand. Together we are creating an organisation that will serve all New Zealanders across the length and breadth of the country; that’s a real honour and one not lost on the Transition Project Team. Find out more about the work that has been done to date in the End of Year Progress Summary, which is on our website:
