The New Zealand Fire Service Commission has a statutory duty to promote fire safety, better work practices and effective rural fire management. This requires that it supports research into better methods and practices of fire safety. The Commission has made available a contestable research fund of $550,000 annually for research into a variety of areas identified as being of immediate importance.
Submissions for the 2016 year round have now closed and will reopen late October 2016.
