Fire & Emergency Dispute Resolution Scheme consultation opens

04 February 2020

Fire and Emergency NZ has opened public consultation on proposed Rules for a Dispute Resolution Scheme.

The scheme will replace the one that has been in place on an interim basis since the organisation was established in 2017. The purpose of the scheme is to enable organisations, members of the public and Fire and Emergency volunteer firefighters to raise and resolve disputes relating to the delivery of Fire and Emergency NZ’s services and processes.

Information on the proposed Rules is in a consultation document. The Rules will outline the purpose of the scheme, who can use it and why, how to apply, how the process would work, what the outcome could be, and how the Scheme will be administered.

Submissions close at 5pm on 20 February 2020.
