Hutt Wairarapa Operational Support welcomes anyone interested in becoming a volunteer who wish to serve their community. The following will hopefully give you an insight into what opportunities there are within the Hutt Valley Fire Support.
It should be noted that a full Class 1 (Car) Drivers License is a minimum prerequisite. You should also have your own vehicle.
In the initial stages, Trainee members are not assigned to a crew roster and instead respond to all callouts they are available to attend. This is in order to maximise their initial exposure to Fire Support operations. After an initial period of training and response, and once a base level familiarity in our procedures is gained, the trainee is attached to one of the duty crews and will respond with them for all future calls as appropriate. On the fireground they continue to report directly to the senior member present and will generally be supervised by a full member at all times whilst at the scene of an incident.
