Team Leader Procurement

Nothing is more important to us than our people – he waka eke noa.

About Us

Fire and Emergency New Zealand was set up under new legislation in July 2017, combining 40 urban and rural fire services and 14,000 people. We became one national emergency management organisation to keep New Zealanders, their property and our unique environment safe.

We respond to structure and vegetation fires. And while the core role of firefighters is to put out fires, it is much more than that. 

We rescue people involved in transport accidents or other incidents, urban search and rescue, deal with dangerous substances, weather events and natural disasters. 

Our firefighters educate communities to prepare for emergencies, prevent and mitigate them, and teach them how to recover more quickly when they do happen.

We also assist other agencies in the response to medical emergencies, maritime incidents and vehicle accidents.
