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.
Do you realize when you obstruct a disabled carpark you stop a disabled person from doing what you can do easily?
My husband is disabled and has a disabled car park card to enable him to engage in our weekend activities and get out of the car with us when we go out. This afternoon we went to New World Long bay & there was someone unloading their weeks worth of shopping into there car using the car park (which we pay for by the way) as a loading bay to underload his shopping he saw us but not move out of the way for us to access the park or move his trolly which was obstructing the park. We had to back into oncoming traffic and then use another park luckily myself and my daughter were in the car but my husband could not join us he also uses theses small trips into retailers as part of his rehab. We ask that if you are able-bodied do not use the parks & do not obstruct them with trollers their person who did this we have your registration and have reported this to the Police and also management at New World Long Bay & they will in touch with you

Kia ora Auckland, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.
Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.
