The Virus

Grant from Raureka

Here's another question for everybody - is it time to start heavily fining or arresting people who are breaking the rules (such as people driving for no proper reason, going to the beach to surf or play, etc etc ). My opinion for what it's worth - they are putting their own families/friends at risk and by extension the rest of us - so fine them heavily (Minimum $500) or arrest if serial offenders. Why should the rest of the population be placed at risk because some idiots feel it's their right to do whatever they want at this time. Comments??

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.

Just heard Mototdrome Napier and Hastings advertising they are open over the lock down. I'm speechless!
