Verse of The Day
“Otiia i a ia e hurihuri ana i enei mea, na, ka puta moemoea mai tetahi anahera a te Ariki ki a ia, ka mea, E Hohepa, e te tama a Rawiri, kaua e hopohopo ki te tango i a Meri, i tau wahine; na te Wairua Tapu hoki tona hapu. A e whanau ia he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko IHU: no te mea mana e whakaora tona iwi i o ratou hara.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

The Ngunguru brigade has assisted in thousands of call-outs involving building and scrub fires, motor vehicle accidents, storm damage including slips, securing roofs and trampolines, search and rescues and animal rescues.

Through all of this the comradeship and the sense of community has held strong within the brigade. It has grown to a crew of 20 firefighters and operational support.
