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.

Libraries reopen with limited services

The Team from Marlborough District Council

The Marlborough District Library (Blenheim) and Picton Library and Service Centre are now open but they’re operating in a different way under Alert Level 2.

You can return library items via the after-hours facility, borrow, request and collect held items. To enter the library you have to show your library card. This is to help with contact tracing; only one family member is allowed in at one time.

Some services including wifi, computer access, printing, newspapers and programmes such as Baby Rhyme Time are unavailable. The libraries are open from 10.00 am - 4.00 pm Monday to Friday.
