Message from Fire & Emergency NZ
Friday 27 March 2020
Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period. We will continue to respond to emergencies.
But we’d like people to help by being vigilant and by checking their homes are fire safe.
Fire and Emergency suggests using this time to check your workspace set up to ensure plugs aren’t overloaded. Make sure your heating source is at least a metre away from everything – including other people, laundry and furniture. Keep your cooking surfaces free from grease and never, ever leave pans unattended on the stove top. For more information see this media release.
