Rotorua Operational Support

The Rotorua Operational Support unit was set up in 2000 after a need was seen to support the Rotorua station Career firefighters. Since then they have grown in numbers and calls and get busier every year. The unit covers the Rotorua fire district area, as well as Ngongotaha and Mamaku as their normal turnout area. They also travel to Taupo, Tokoroa, Putaruru and have been involved in both of the Eastern BOP Floods and Tamahere coolstores. This year has seen the unit attend over 100 callouts so far. The Rotorua Operational Support unit have replaced their response van which was getting on and now have an Ultralight which has light masts and more room for equipment and canteen supplies.
