More should pay for Fire Service: report

Fire Service levies should be widened to include all those who benefit from them, an independent review report says.

The service is funded by levies on fire insurance policies although firefighter roles include dealing with rescues, floods, earthquakes and storms.

The report recommends widening the net to include those who benefit from non-fire rescue and emergency services and says if that happened the overall levy rate would fall.

The panel, headed by former Labour cabinet minister Paul Swain, praises the service for its professionalism.

Internal Affairs Minister Chris Tremain says the government hasn't committed to or ruled out any recommendations.
