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.

Back where it belongs

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,

It was a special day in the newsroom on Monday as Stuff's chief executive Sinead Boucher announced a management buyout of the company, of which the Waikato Times is a part, from its Australian owner Nine Entertainment.

It puts an end to NZME's increasingly desperate bid to get its clutches on Stuff. It also puts it firmly in the hands of those who want the best for it, a NZ owner who understands the business.

What's your view on the Times moving back into NZ hands?

Read more local reaction to the buyout here.
