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.

Smiling Faces Always Find A Welcome

Andrea from TempDirect

That's why everyone should learn to smile
Remember after all, your troubles may be small
And that is just the reason why I say

When you're blue and kind of lonely too
A little smile can go a long, long way
When you're down, don't sit around and frown
A little smile will go a long, long, way

Never grieve, just try and make believe
the sky is blue although you know it's gray
Never pine, it's just a waste of time
A little smile will go a long, long way.

Please community, stay positive and kind.

Please, on your walk today, DO NOT USE the community book swap boxes. They are a Coronavirus transmission risk. Our local libraries are closed for the same reason. I contacted Akl Council who say they are not administered by them. I spoke to the Govt Healthline and I reached out the Police to see if they could assist by locating and putting signs on these boxes. I'm not sure what will happen... it's all too hard right now I guess, as these agencies are so busy, but please be mindful... DON'T TOUCH THE BOXES OR THE BOOKS! Don't swap your own books - or anything else! - with your neighbours either. Take care.
