Funding NZ fire-services

Funding New Zealand’s fire-services

TDB is pleased to have contributed to the work of the Property Council that has led to the government announcing a review of the funding of fire services in New Zealand. The government has said it recognises the problems with the current regime’s reliance on property insurance levies and will consider a clean slate approach to the funding of Fire and Emergency Services NZ (FENZ). In our report for the Property Council, we discussed a number of best-practice approaches to funding fire and emergency services both in New Zealand and internationally. The government’s review plans to look at a range of options to achieve a funding regime that is stable, universal, fair and flexible.
