At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.

Bear hunt map

Michael from Kohimarama

Kia ora, I've just developed a mobile friendly bear hunt map at bearhunt.co... .

It's so lovely to see so many neighbours participating the move by putting their bears / toys up. My wife is 36 weeks pregnant at the moment and we do a very minimum daily walking around the block just to keep the exercise level not completely void before the big time. Even at night (usually for us) we can see bears though the windows if the room light is on and curtain is open.

I made this map NOT to "encourage" people to get out and do it. But just to add a little bit fun if you spot the bears and want to share the joy with others. All you need to do when tagging is just to open the app from the phone and three clicks though the buttons to tag it. You could also attach a photo if you wish.

Kia kaha.

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, Social distancing is the new buzzword, but out in semi-rural areas the end result seems to be that people are "closer". Do you notice a greater enjoyment in random social greetings? Read the column below:
