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.

The Classic Club Sandwich remains one of these 'comfort dishes' that is ever popular but it needs to hold together so that the components don't slip alway and fall on your special jacket or silk dress.

As part of our Canapes and Drinks Party Cuisine module, we make a classic club with the test being - can you cut it in a triangle shape, on its side, and place on a platter, without the sandwich collapsing...
