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.

I'm not sure why but I began creating some documents to help people with things that a lot of others would see as basic or simple and not needing direction.
So, I figure I'd test the waters.
I'm making a small document with large print and images stepping through how to order, (specifically for this one) from Countdown for Delivery.
Do you all think this will be useful or not?
Also I am taking suggestions on what other things you'd like to see a step by step guide for or think others may benefit from.
