Dear Fire and Emergency New Zealand,
-Could you provide a list of fire brigades that are "first response" brigades for medical emergencies
-Could you define the difference between co-response and first response fire brigades and the training they receive?
-Are all rural fire brigades medical responders?
-Could you also release any operational, training material, guides or manuals for FENZ medical responses, please?
-Does FENZ have any future plans for additional or more advanced medical training for frontline fire staff and volunteers.
