We need your help to build our new Fire Station....please


In 2006 the necessity for a fire force located in the small community of Puhoi was recognized by a supportive and growing community. The presence of many historic and vulnerable buildings in the village, and the lack of access to immediate emergency services were seen as key drivers for the volunteer fire force to be established. Currently the brigade operates out of temporary facilities comprising of a lean-to structure positioned between two 40-foot shipping containers that provide crude storage and office facilities.

Plans are now well advanced to relocate the Puhoi Volunteer Rural Fire Force (PVRFF) into a purpose-designed facility on land made available by the Auckland Council. At a cost of $1.4 million, the new fire station is a major funding challenge for the PVRFF.

On average the PVRFF respond to 100 call-outs per year, spanning from vegetation and structure fires, motor vehicle accidents, medical emergencies and providing support to other fire services at large incidents further afield. The PVRFF has a strong contingent of 14 members and undertake all the roles associated with maintaining a vast array of equipment, and developing capability. The PVRFF operates a fleet of one fire appliance and a 4WD utility vehicle. The 2000m2 site for the new fire station will have two vehicle bays, purpose designed storage, office space, a training room and kitchen facilities. The station will double as a Civil Defence Evacuation/Welfare Centre for the surrounding communities.
