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.

Water - are you getting enough?

Clinical Nutritionist from livingcure.co.nz

With the weather getting colder, we often don’t feel as thirsty and its easy for many hours to go by without drinking. However, water is defined as an ‘essential’ nutrient as it is required by the body for digestion, absorption, transportation and elimination. See my post under Inspiring Nutrients for why water is so important.
