Rural fire authorities

Rural fire authorities are responsible for managing wildfires in New Zealand's forest and rural areas, which cover 96% of the total land area.

Our people & organisation

Our goal at the National Rural Fire Authority (NRFA) is to reduce the number and consequence of wildfires in rural areas. To achieve this, we work throughout the country with a range of organisations that are invested in managing rural fires.
