About Us

A Proud Tradition in Muriwai 

Muriwai Volunteer Fire Force was established in 1965 by a group of locals who were worried that the communities' isolation left it vulnerable to fires and other emergencies.

The brigade started life as a 'Fire Party' out of a small shed (still present at the back of our current station) with fire fighting equipment that was funded by the community after a lot of hard work fundraising and effort from individuals in the community and brigade members personally chipping in cash.

Over time the brigade has evolved and we became a Rural Fire Force, part of the National Rural Fire Authority and funded mainly by Auckland Council

In November 2014 we became part of the New Zealand Fire Service and in July 2017 both Rural Fire and NZFS merged to become one national agency, Fire and Emergency New Zealand, FENZ.

Currently, the Brigade operates a IVECO pump tender and a specialised Ford Ranger 4WD for off-road emergencies such as beach rescues and fires.

One thing is consistent through the years; the dedication and commitment of a group of local residents to ensure we have a fire and rescue capability to protect and serve the community.
