Hutt Wairarapa Operational Support officially recognises employers of members via the NZFS Employer Recognition Scheme.
The Employer Recognition Scheme acknowledges and thanks employers of volunteer Fire Service Personnel who might have to leave their work to turn out and self-employed members for whom work would stop altogether. Participating employers are offered benefits such as having their brand displayed on fire service vehicles as a public acknowledgement of their support and the use of the Fire Service Employer Programme in their own advertising.
Participating employers and representatives of Hutt Wairarapa Operational Support members are presented with certificates which can also be displayed in a prominent area of the workplace for the public and colleagues to view.
