Wenita held fire-extinguisher training for all harvesting, land-prep, forestry roading contractors and Wenita staff in February. This training included the use of powder and foam extinguishers. It’s the first time we have had this type of training, and everyone involved got something out of it. Wenita would like to thank Nick Petrie from Firewatch for going around the Wenita estate and providing the training to everyone.

In January, the FENZ-contracted silviculture crews had their annual fire training. They were assessed in using light and medium fire pumps. Thanks to the FENZ trainers Amber Hollis and Mike Ide for taking the time to come down from Queenstown and work with our contractors.
