The Turangi Fire Brigade launched its 50th Jubilee Publication on Saturday 24th October 2015. Foundation Member Jim Thomas, along with newest Recruit Firefighter Teresa Wheoki were presented with the first copies at the Jubilee Ball by Chief Fire Officer Tong Kingi and Jubilee Coordinator Christal Morrison.
The publication has been compiled from research collated from numerous sources and hundreds of hours of digging through archives, newspaper articles, on station records, such as brigade minute books, building plans and call logs.
"We strive to create a publication that is a celebration of the Turangi Fire Brigade,
and its community."
This historical record of 50 years is vibrantly presented and complimented by stunning images from local photographers.
It captures a piece of community heritage and brings to life the stories of community spirit and enduring service of members past and present.
