Employer recognition programme

Fire and Emergency New Zealand

Employer recognition programme

Fire and Emergency New Zealand offers an Employer Recognition Programme (ERP). This is our way of recognising businesses that employ and support people who volunteer at their local fire brigade.

The programme is based on building partnerships with employers and the self-employed who share similar values and a commitment to building strong, safe and caring communities.

Here are some of the benefits of participating in the Employer Recognition Programme:

  • You'll be able to use the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Employer Recognition Programme brand in advertising and promotions.
  • You'll receive public acknowledgement of support. Businesses that employ volunteers often have their branding on volunteer fire appliances, fire station signage and portable banners used at public events in the community.
  • You'll be listed in a “Thank You” advertisement in the local community paper.
  • You'll be invited to an annual Employer Recognition event. These provide valuable networking and relationship building opportunities within the business community.

Any questions or queries relating to the Employer Recognition Programme can be sent to erp@fireandemergency.nz
