Fire and Emergency New Zealand

Interested in becoming an LAC member?

Please note: we are currently not seeking LAC nominations. However, if you would like to register your interest, please look over the role description and membership selection criteria below to see if the role is right for you. 

For Local Advisory Committees to be effective, we need them to reach beyond the organisations and networks we already work with. Our evaluation and appointment process focuses on identifying people who are:

  • well-connected and respected, able to engage with a range of networks and communities of interest to gather a community-wide perspective, not just represent a specific group
  • known for their integrity, able to put personal views to one side to represent all stakeholders in their local community
  • able to think strategically about local risks and issues, cutting to the heart of what matters, and applying a logical, common sense pragmatic approach
  • highly-collaborative and inclusive of different views, so that the LAC can work together towards consensus in the advice provided to Fire and Emergency on behalf of their community
  • committed to building a safer, more resilient New Zealand.

If you believe you can fulfil the above, please send us an introduction of yourself, the LAC boundary you are interested in joining and your contact details.
