Community driver mentor programme being brought to Rangiora

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A driver mentor programme being rolled out in Rangiora aims to break down barriers for unlicensed drivers.

The Community Driver Mentor Programme, which has helped almost 800 drivers since its inception, will soon be available in Rangiora.

Rangiora area coordinator Julia Graham hopes to enlist the help of 20 volunteers mentors in the area. Each volunteer needs to have held a full driver licence for two years and be willing to have a police check.

Mentors also need to attend a workshop, undergo some in-car training, and be available for two drives a week.

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.
