Harwood Wilson made this Official Information request to Fire and Emergency New Zealand

The request was partially successful.

From: Harwood Wilson

Dear Fire and Emergency New Zealand,

I believe there has been some change of resources within Banks Peninsula area following the change over from Christchurch City Council RFA to FENZ, I acknowledge many of those resources were very dated.

Please can you specify the current rural fire resources in the Bank Peninsula area, by rural I mean all resources NOT based at urban stations.

Please supply a list of resources which includes the following:
1. Location of resource
2. Type of storage for resource: i.e. certificated building or shipping container.
3. Turnout method for resource: i.e. pager, manual phone calls, text
4. Number and type of mobile equipment per location: i.e. trailer or appliance
5. Any currently planned future additions to rural resource or stations within this area.

6. Any rural resource locations that have been disbanded and brief reason why.

Yours faithfully,
