WELFARE SOCIETY (NZFFWS)

Signing of CooperationChief Executive Rhys Jones signed a Statement of Cooperation with NZ Firefighters’ Welfare Society (NZFFWS) Chair Keith Nixon on Thursday 8 February, signalling the two organisations’ commitment to the welfare and wellbeing of Fire and Emergency personnel and their families.

The Statement of Cooperation outlines how the two organisations will work together.

“Fire and Emergency NZ recognises the value provided by the NZFFWS to our people. As the majority of their work is done voluntarily we’re very appreciative of the contribution they make as an independent support agency and so I am very pleased to sign this statement.”

The NZ Firefighters Welfare Society offers membership to all those who are or who have been associated with Fire and Emergency NZ. Specifically, membership is open to volunteer, Urban, Rural and Career Firefighters, management, clerical and support staff.

The voting for Region 2, 4 and 6 closed at 10am May 18, 2018. It is my pleasure as returning Officer to announce Jenna Collings as the new Board Rep for Region 2.

Erroll Tapiki stood unopposed for Region 4 and was re-elected. Congratulations Erroll.

Kris Kennett stood unopposed for Region 6 and was re-elected. Congratulations Kris.

We wish Malcolm Langdon (former Region 2 Rep) all the best for the future. His good work in the region is confirmed by the interest the members of Region 2 took in this election with three standing.  The ballot vote return was also impressive. Our thanks go to Malcolm for his years of service and tireless effort on behalf of all the members of Region Two. 

Our congratulations also go to Jenna who today begins a new journey.
