Coastal News - - Front Page - By CFO NIGEL AIREY Whanga­mata Fire Bri­gade

This week two calls re­quired the bri­gade’s re­sponse.

On Wed­nes­day we at­tended a light truck roll over just south of Whanga­mata. Luck­ily, no in­juries re­sulted from the in­ci­dent.

On Fri­day a med­i­cal as­sist call came through, al­though we were stood down while on route.

Since the Fire and Emer­gency NZ roll­out in July the change of sys­tems and poli­cies have im­proved the ser­vice even more.

The huge task of change is un­der way and it will take sev­eral years to im­ple­ment them all across the board.

What has stayed the same is our com­mit­ment to the pro­tec­tion of all those in the com­mu­nity com­bin­ing with our ru­ral fire force ser­vices in One­m­ana and Whir­i­toa.

Wish­ing you a safe school hol­i­day and fun week — Nigel.
