Nine­teen One­m­ana ru­ral fire (FENZ) vol­un­teers ex­pe­ri­enced the ex­hil­a­ra­tion of a train­ing ses­sion with a Thames Sky­works he­li­copter on Satur­day at a ru­ral prop­erty in Opoutere. Fire chief Jo Adams said the vol­un­teers loved the ex­pe­ri­ence and the train­ing was in­valu­able. “It’s a vi­tal piece of ru­ral fire­fight­ing to be able to work around th­ese ma­chines,” he said.
