The station attends over 500 calls each year to a wide range of emergencies and assists our neighbouring brigades, Paekakariki and Waikanae at motor accidents, car fires, structure and vegetation fires. The brigade, as a unit of the New Zealand Fire Service can also be called upon to assist other brigades in a much wider area. We have assisted Otaki, Porirua, Plimmerton and Wellington stations at fires and accidents. The station has two Type 3 Fire Appliances, a Pump known as Paraparaumu 371, a Pump/Rescue Tender known as Paraparaumu 377 and an Operational Support unit known as Paraparaumu 3726.
Enquiries to becoming a volunteer member of the brigade should contact the Deputy Chief Fire Officer Trevor Moss on Monday nights during our training from 1900hrs, at the station 22 Te Roto Drive, Paraparaumu.
The Paraparaumu Volunteers would not
be able to provide a service to the community without the support and
generosity of members’ employers. Though a large portion of our call-outs are
at nights, emergencies are not dictated by normal working hours and some calls
are during work hours. A number of our employers allow their staff to attend
day-time calls and we wish to acknowledge their contribution by way of this
website, as part of our overall Employer Recognition Programme. A special
thank you to all our employers and while we do not endorse any products or
services of the businesses, we are highly appreciative of the support they give
us and hope you may consider contacting them if ever in need of services they
We also acknowledge employers who may not be in a position to allow time off at no notice but may contribute to the safety of their community through granting time off for training or public relations, or by making financial donations to the brigade, or simply by letting someone come in to work a little late to allow them some extra rest after a over night call!
