Help stop Wilson Parkings shameful practices during this crisis!

Michael Neighbourly Lead from Roslyn - Terrace End

Wilson Parking have decided that during this crisis in which our Essential Medical Staff whom have made the choice to risk their lives in serving the public (sometimes at the detriment of their own families safety. ) that they should still be paid and can charge our heroes for the opportunity to have a place to park nearby the hospital.

I find this shameful and would love for anyone else who feels the same way to please sign this petition and to make it known that Wilson should not profit at the expense of those who are risking their lives to save ours.

Follow this link below,

Please sign this petition and share. Show our Heroes at the Hospital, that we care and that they shouldn't have to worry about parking money when they have much bigger concerns.

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.
