Wainuiomata Operational Support

The Wainuiomata Operational Support unit has been operating for nearly as long as the brigade (63 years) with 2-3 members. About 15 years ago there was a recruitment drive, which swelled the numbers to 14. Over time this number has dropped to 7. The unit looks after the entire Wainuiomata district, urban and rural and in conjunction with Hutt Valley Fire Support look after the lower Hutt Valley areas. We are mostly required to manage traffic control, crowd control, and scene guard duties, Lighting. All of the equipment is transported in a trailer which they purchased through fund raising, and is towed by their response vehicle - Wainuiomata 4426.
