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.

Steph Rangi Reporter from Taupō Times

Many volunteers have raised their hands to help during the COVID-19 lockdown, but all volunteers and groups must register first.

Volunteer groups across the Taupō District have admirably put their hand up to help during the COVID-19 crisis. With the safety of everyone in mind, all volunteers and groups need to register through Civil Defence to actively be part of the response. All groups will be assessed and notified in writing to proceed.

To be involved you must call the Taupō District Council customer services team on (07) 376 0899, with the following information prepared:

- Name of community group
- Key contact person
- Key contact persons mobile number, address and email
- A list of volunteers
- Awareness of the five key points for
- Safe Practices
- Age Appropriate
- Vulnerable Group- who are they targeting
- Volunteer Integrity
- Whanau First
- Distribution venue
- Awareness of Health and Safety measures including in regard to COVID-19.

Civil Defence controller Doug Wilcox said as much as people’s intentions were good, there needed to be a co-ordinated response.

“To make the best use of time and the resources, we are asking groups to register.

“Please don’t go out and make your own plans to help. We don’t want to risk a community spread through the Taupō District.”
