Air Desk BCP Dispatchers

E. Bowdler made this Official Information request to Fire and Emergency New Zealand

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for E. Bowdler to read a recent response and update the status.

From: E. Bowdler

Dear Fire and Emergency New Zealand,

Recently, several qualified Air Support Supervisors received training as Air Desk Dispatchers to run the FENZ National Air Desk outside of the Southern Communications Centre. Accordingly, I wish to obtain the following information:

1. What training have these personnel received on ARENA and the FENZ Air Desk?
2. How and why were these personnel selected to receive Air Desk training?
3. For those personnel who are not paid employees of FENZ (i.e. volunteers), are they paid for Air Desk duties?
4. If so, how much are they paid, how was the pay rate determined, and how is it funded?
5. Please provide any and all correspondence in relation to the above requests.

Yours faithfully,

E. Bowdler
