On 4 October 2017 you lodged a request for information from Fire and Emergency New Zealand
(Fire and Emergency
). On 5 October, Fire and Emergency New Zealand acknowledged that your
request had been received.
In order to establish whether the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA
) applies to your request, Fire
and Emergency must establish whether you are a person eligible to make a request under that Act.
Subsection 12(1) of the OIA provides that the following people are eligible to request information
under the Act:
a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident;
a person who is in New Zealand;
a body corporate that is either incorporated in New Zealand, or
a body corporate that has a place of business in New Zealand.
In order for your request to be considered under the OIA, and so that Fire and Emergency can
provide necessary assistance, we would be grateful if you could please provide your contact details
(ie. name and address) or other information that confirms your eligibility to make a request under
the OIA. At the moment, Fire and Emergency only has the single name you have provided through
the fyi.org.nz website.
Following confirmation of your eligibility to make a request under the OIA, Fire and Emergency looks
forward to providing all reasonable assistance in connection with it.
