Fire and Emergency New Zealand is setting up Local Advisory Committees to provide us with advice about what your community values, its needs and the risks it’s facing.

Want to help us build a safer, stronger Tairawhiti? Fire and Emergency will shortly be seeking nominations for  well-connected and respected community members to form our new Tairawhiti

Local Advisory Committee. Local Advisory Committees will provide a strong representative voice for Tairawhiti and their collective advice will inform Fire and Emergency’s local and national planning.

We’re seeking people who can genuinely represent the views and concerns of diverse community groups or interests within their local area.

Hui will be held at the venues listed below
