Fire and Emergency CEO visit to Rarangi VRFF

Fire and Emergency CEO visit to Rarangi VRFF Date Posted: Sep 29, 2017

Chief Executive Officer of Fire and Emergency New Zealand visit to Marlborough

On Tuesday 26 September 2017 the CEO visited Marlborough and took the time to go out to the Rarangi Volunteer Fire Force Station to meet the crews.  It was a dull day, but the visit was greatly appreciated.  A wide range of queries had arisen since the integration of Fire and Emergency New Zealand and they were answered to the satisfaction of the attendees.  Steve Banks (Controller of Rarangi VRFF) said it was heartening to see the drive, passion and experience that is going on behind the scenes.

There was a meeting held at the Marlborough Emergency Operations Centre where the members of Inter-Agency Regional Incident Management Team were updated on how the transition of Fire & Emergency New Zealand was progressing and the expectations over the next three to four years.  This meeting was well received by attendees and they appreciated the CEO giving up his valuable time to come to Marlborough.

Scott Henry from Rarangi was very creative and made a Scottish Kilt out of an old PPE jacket.  He intends to wear this kilt at the next Sky Tower Challenge.
