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.

Canterbury pub to be demolished, rebuilt after Christmas Eve fire

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

A 100-year-old Canterbury pub, destroyed by a fire on Christmas Eve, is to be demolished and rebuilt, licensee Steve Evans says.

Kirwee Tavern on West Coast Rd — about 35 kilometres west of Christchurch — was gutted by the blaze, which is understood to have been caused by an electrical fault.

The historic pub — affectionately known as The Wee — will be bulldozed after the rebuild plan was delayed by the Covid-19 lockdown.
