The North Canterbury community of Oxford is celebrating a win for common sense with the reinstatement of its fire siren.
While Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Fenz) said it was not stopping the siren altogether, it had already added a three-minute delay at night to minimise disruption to residents.
Oxford residents opposed the change and gathered nearly 1000 signatures – almost half of the town’s population of 2200 – last week to get the siren returned to normal.
Now head through to our competition page to enter to win one of two $200 vouchers to spend at Bunnings.
