Community invited to visit fire damaged home - 2nd June

The Webmaster from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

Bulls Volunteer Fire Brigade are holding an Open Home at the scene of a house fire in Hudson Street, Bulls.

Fire safety officer John Hotter says that the Open home on Saturday 2nd June between 10am and 3pm is a good opportunity for the public to see the devastating impact of a house fire.

Fire and Emergency NZ will take families through the house showing them significant points of interest like where and how the fire started, how damage could have been reduced and the impact of smoke and flames.

Fire safety information will be available for people to take away.

If you are unable to make this event and would like your smoke alarm checked please contact 0800 693 473 or your local fire station.
