Pumicelands is the organisation responsible for rural fire in the Central North Island of New Zealand. Its mission is to protect lives, rural homes, orchards, farms, forests and public conservation land from the damaging effects of wildfires.

In case of fire phone 111

Pumicelands District is continuing to monitor the very dry weather conditions and the impact it has on issuing Fire Permits. All new permits received will be placed ON HOLD until further notice and sufficient rain has alleviated conditions.
