Who's setting off fireworks tonight?! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’ฅ

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Fireworks are a ton of fun but carry real risks that need to be taken seriously. If you plan on lighting some here's some tips to keep everyone in your community safe and happy.

โŒ 1. Never light fireworks in dry or windy conditions.

๐Ÿ”ฅ 2. Only use fireworks in wide open areas, away from flammable items such as trees, grasses, gas tanks, and wood.

๐Ÿ’ฆ 3. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby.

๐Ÿ‘ง 4. Children should never light fireworks themselves and need to be supervised closely at all times.

๐Ÿงฐ 5. Keep all unlit fireworks in a secure bag or container away from any source of fire until they are ready to be used.

๐Ÿ“ž 6. Be considerate and let neighbours know if you're planning to set off fireworks. Aim to finish at a reasonable time.

๐Ÿฑ 7. Keep pets comfortable and secure inside. The loud booms and flashing lights can easily scare them off.

๐Ÿฎ 8. Avoid lighting off fireworks around farm animals and be aware of any newborns or elderly neighbours who may also be affected. If possible, change locations to somewhere that minimises any disturbances.

๐ŸŒฟ 9. Be a tidy Kiwi and let's work together to keep New Zealand beautiful! Clean up any any rubbish and leave your spot better than you found it.

Fire works around Daytona reserve area

Leanne from Henderson

Who are the idiots still letting fire works off every night. Think of animals and others around you. Think of the dryness around you and look at Australia.

Auckland bus strike: What you need to know

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

More than 70,000 daily bus trips could be affected by a suspension dealt to hundreds of NZ Bus drivers across Auckland. The suspension comes after tensions between NZ Bus and union members as they tried to settle on a new collective agreement regarding pay and work hours. Union members had been declining bus fares from passengers, and planned to do so until Christmas before the suspension began. Now drivers will go without pay until Christmas Eve.
NZ Bus' biggest area is central Auckland, all of the Link services, and those serving the main isthmus arterials to eastern suburbs and along Mt Eden, Dominion and Sandringham Roads, as well as some to the outer west and northwest, and on the North Shore.
How has the bus driver suspension affected you? Let us know in the comments.
