For crying out loud Auckland Council, SORT YOUR S**T OUT!!!
When it appears to be more red flags of 'Long Term Effect' hazard alerts than the so called "Safe areas' around Auckland's coastlines, especially out West, then one has to wonder what the heck is the Auckland Council actually doing.
There are nearly 40 high-risk places that exceed national guidelines for swimming.
How on earth can an area that is surrounded by tidal waters continually be contaminated by all sorts of human and animal waste flowing into the sea?
There is even a black alert that means there is a very high risk of illness from swimming for North Shore's Castor Bay.
Any area with a green (so called safe area) that sits between any red flags, sure as heck should be a huge concern to all those people swimming or God forbid, catching fish there.
It's damn well safer to swim down at Mangere where the sewage treatment plant is for crying out loud!
With Auckland having one of the highest rates nationwide, with the least amount to show for the rates they are grabbing from left right & centre, who will step in and make them accountable or even audit them?
Who will actually give a damn about our safety and health?
Had a great conversation one of my team leaders Michael Berry and a client this morning. Michael and his wife Arni live in Hawaii enjoying life working part time online.
Meeting people in your circle, with like- minded visions and goals provides opportunities.
Here's to endless opportunities 🥂
Only 10 days to go until the 2019 Emergency Mobile Alert nationwide test on 24 November!
EMAs allow you to quickly receive important information from relevant government agencies if there is a serious risk to your life, health or property. The upcoming test allows NZ Civil Defence to evaluate the system to ensure as many people as possible can receive alerts.
