The popular event had been grounded for the past six years, partly because of Covid pandemic restrictions. This Easter weekend it returns, with a sellout crowd of more than 60,000 people set to attend today and tomorrow. Photos / George Heard

Auckland Brigade celebrates 150 years fighting fires

Firefighting can be traced all the way back to ancient Rome, who boasted 7,000 professionals in service, and the first handpump to squirt water at fires was invented nearly 2 millennia ago by an Egyptian named Ctesibus from Alexandria. Tāmaki Makaurau’s history of fighting fires is a little shorter, but no less proud. The Auckland Fire Brigade celebrated their 150th anniversary with an open day at The Cloud on the Auckland waterfront. Fire personnel showed off their aerial appliances, equipment through past years, skills at handling fires and other emergencies and even gave kids some hands-on experience with hoses and fire extinguishers. All good fuel to spark a fire within young hearts and minds, no doubt. Photographs by Hayden Woodward
