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.
Please consider doing this if you are in the high-risk group and have to go out:
Pin a piece of white cloth to your clothing. (You could even write 'At High-Risk' on it to make it clear you are vulnerable, not infected - or part of a cult)
It will alert others to the fact that your are in this group, as I have seen some pretty poor social distancing/not covering when coughing going on.
For all those commenting that people in this group just shouldn't go out, not everyone is able to do this e.g they lack help with things like shopping (I can't even get through to online grocery delivery), they have vital medical appointments, they have children who need some air.
Also, if everyone applied social distancing correctly, then there would be no issue with those of us in the high-risk group having a short, daily walk - a lot of us have already been quite isolated by our conditions well before C-19 showed up.
I fall into this group, yet look healthy, so it's good for people to understand we're not just talking about the obviously elderly - although I think they should do this too. The more people who do this, the sooner others will understand what it means - someone had to wear the first pink ribbons etc.
There are already great people out there 'acting like they have COVID-19' as suggested by our PM. This is a quick, visual reminder, for those who aren't.
IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS IDEA, PLEASE JUST IGNORE IT. I'M SIMPLY ATTEMPTING TO HELP FELLOW KIWIS IN MY POSITION NEGOTIATE A FRIGHTENING TIME.
REMEMBER, THIS LOCKDOWN COULD EASILY GO ON FOR LONGER, OR GET REINTRODUCED. UNTIL THERE IS A VACCINE, PROBABLY 18 MONTHS AWAY, THIS GROUP WILL REMAIN VULNERABLE EVEN WHEN THE MAJORITY GO BACK TO NORMAL DAILY LIFE OVER THIS PERIOD.
Take care everyone.
