Fire and Emergency New Zealand

Fire and Emergency New Zealand operates under the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act 2017. 

Fire and Emergency New Zealand benefits the public by providing security to both public and private rural property owners in the Waitomo District, reducing the risk of widespread damage to forestry and farms and the related negative economic impact on the District as a whole.
