10 years on…Tamahere…Lest we forget.

On 5 April 2008, the refrigeration industry learned a harsh lesson as did the firefighters who attended, along with all those involved.

So much has been said about the ICEPAK blaze in Tamahere already. As an industry we must ensure we continue to promote improved standards, training and regulations with the view to never seeing such a tragic incident again.

Our thoughts are with the family of Derek Lovell and those injured in the blaze.
