We are moving some of our services online over time to make it quicker and easier for you to work with us.
To apply to have an evacuation scheme approved online, you need to have a RealMe login which allows you to use the same credentials to access various government online services.
These reports matter because it's important to learn what causes fires, how buildings and their fire protection systems perform in fires, and about the behavior of people during fires.
This information can be used to stop fires reoccurring and improve community safety in the future. It is also useful to many industry groups, who use it to improve the fire safety of products they make, build or supply. It's helpful for compliance authorities such as building authorities who check on compliance with building codes, and for health agencies who learn about risks to people. Researchers and insurers request this information to assist them in their fields of study and business.
To capture this learning the Fire Service requires our Specialist Fire Investigators to attend, investigate and report on the cause of certain fires such as high value loss fires, fires where fire protection systems didn't work as expected, suspected arson, and fires causing serious injuries etc.
RealMe is a service from the New Zealand government and New Zealand Post that includes a single login, letting you use one username and password to access a wide range of services online.
