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.
Sorry for the long and blunt title but I have learned that the MDC website www.mdc.govt.nz... this number 06 323 0000 are not for residents of Palmerston North.
After contacting the Manawatu District Council, I was informed that this site and number are for rural places in the Manawatu which do not have a direct council. It is aimed at providing help with groceries or medication but it isn't for Palmerston North residents.
I am currently in communication with the Palmerston North City Council and have been informed that a similar site supporting for Palmerstonians is in progress but cannot accurately say when it will be up but it is hinted "Very Soon". I will keep you posted as soon as I hear anything.
Further to that I have enquired about what has been done with the information already submitted to MDC from Palmerstonians and have been told it was passed on back to the PNCC.
I have also asked PNCC if the info already submitted to MDC was able to be collated together in some way with the PNCC's upcoming support registration system, in any way people won't need to resubmit their applications and I am waiting to hear back on that.
So to recap, For those of us in Palmy,
1. Please do not apply to the MDC Support page
www.mdc.govt.nz... or contact 06 323 0000 this particular service is not for Palmerstonians.
2. Our Council is working on a similar system, it will be up very soon. I'll post here the moment I know.
3. If you have already applied to MDC, they sent your info back to PNCC in the hopes it can be integrated with PNCC support systems. I'm waiitng to hear back if that information can be used or if you need to reapply entirely when the PNCC COVID-19 Support site is up. I'll publish the info here as soon as I hear.
