If an emergency happens, you know they’re here to help.

If your property catches fire or you’re in a car crash, it is the volunteers and career firefighters of Fire and Emergency New Zealand who come running to help.

As soon as that siren goes, they drop what they’re doing and put your safety first.

Behind our tremendous volunteers are another group of community heroes, who get less attention but are vital to Fire and Emergency.

It’s the employers and co-workers who support our volunteers at work, knowing that at any moment they may need to leave and respond to a crisis.

Did you know Fire and Emergency give recognition to the local businesses who support this important work with the Proud Employer mark?

Look out for this mark on businesses in your community or find out which of your local businesses are Proud Employers of Fire and Emergency volunteers here.

And you can show your support for our hardworking fire crews by making a comment on this post – why not share a tribute you would like to make to our firefighters.

Pictured here are four of the 12,000 volunteers who work across the country. Left to right: Marshall (Marsh) Anderson, Jarrad West, Iain Powell, and Marsh’s brother Ti Anderson. All work at Fonterra and volunteer for the local fire brigade.

Come work with us, Christchurch 👋🏼

We are looking for a Community Connector in Christchurch to join the team and help us activate Neighbours Day Aotearoa.

- The hours are flexible and varied

- Paid role (fixed fee)

Print specialist Tracy Reynolds had been working at NZ Post as a print operator for 13 years before she decided to embark on studying towards an NZ Diploma of Print Industry Management Level 5, a qualification she has now completed.

“I’m not the normal age student!” she laughs. “I knew it would be a lot of work, but I was assured that I would have plenty of support from the NZ Post team and I did feel I needed a challenge at the time. Given the current climate right now with COVID-19, I knew the qualification would be an advantage if I was to take another path within NZ Post.”

Tracy has just been named as the Diploma of Print Management Student of the Year at the recent national Pride in Print awards, an honour she says was “absolutely blown away” to receive.

Upskilling is for everyone - you don't need to be new to your industry to gain a qualification and advance in your career!
Tracy is a perfect example of this.
