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 -

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.

Thoughtless and stupid woman risks the health of her neighbour

Lianne from Glenview

Stuff reported that a neighbour in a certain Hamilton street had organised a "community spirit" get together in driveways and on footpaths with drinks. One of them was a thoughtless and stupid woman who was quoted as saying; "Just now I threw a bag of raisins down another neighbour's driveway because she needed raisins, so we just share." This woman ought to know by now that the Covid-19 virus can, and does, live on surfaces of everything it lands on for up to 72 hours!!! Throwing or passing anything to anyone else outside of your bubble risks the health of others. You could so easily be sharing a death sentence in my view.

Coronavirus: Hamilton residents raise a glass to community spirit

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours,
The coronavirus has given rise to a number of quirky phenomenon: the elbow bump, teddy bears in windows and, now, driveway drinkies.
In an effort to boost morale and keep connected, residents along Hamilton's Gillies Ave organised a get together, of sorts, on Friday afternoon.
It was strictly BYO as neighbours chatted to each other from the safety of their own driveways or berms.
