E TATA TOPE E ROA WHAKATIPU

A forest is easy to destroy but it takes a long time to grow.’ Some of the most valuable forest in New Zealand is protected by the Tuwharetoa Rural Fire Committee under the chairmanship of Mr. Alfred Grace. The fire officers of the committee are all of Maori blood: Messrs A. M. Kirk, Wai Tamaira, Pat Maniapoto and Bob Mariu. Using radio communications they can bring capable and well-equipped fire crews quickly into action. But remember, only you can prevent forest fires.
