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.

Geoff Booth for Wel Energy Trust

Geoff from Gordonton - Puketaha

Hello,

I would appreciate just 1 of your votes.

I am the Principal of Puketaha school with a masters in Educational Leadership from the University of Waikato.

The last few months has rocked our equilibrium and as a result we have a unique opportunity to ensure that the Wel Energy Trust really delivers on the needs and aspirations of our community. It requires both a strategic approach and strong moral compass to achieve positive, tangible outcomes for our customers and region. I bring experience, Independence and can collaborate with anyone to drive such results in a fair and equitable manner.

Born, raised and educated in Hamilton, this place is home to my family, which includes my wife and two boys (11 and 9).

The many families I interact with daily provide me inspiration and energy to join a board that will be driven to support the Waikato Region's prosperity.

Thank you.

Will you make the most of changes to DIY rules?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how do you feel about the changes to building consent rules for low-risk home projects?

The government says the change will save homeowners time and money, but pro builder and The Block NZ foreman Peter Wolfkamp, is advising caution if you're planning a DIY sleep-out or office. Find out why, here.
