We are in unprecedented times with a declaration of a National Emergency to combat the COVID 19 virus, uncharted territory since the Brigade started 115 years ago. 

What does it mean for our Community and what can you expect :

  • WE WILL STILL HAVE A CREW RESPONDING TO ALL CALLS INCLUDING MEDICAL CALLS
  • YOU WILL SEE FIRE FIGHTERS IN PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT LIKE MASKS AND GOOGLES or GLASSES ROUTINELY
  • YOU MAY SEE US IN WHITE PROTECTIVE SUITS TO MEDICAL CALLS
  • DO NOT TRY TO HIDE FROM MEDICAL RESPONDERS YOUR MEDICAL OR TRAVEL HISTORY
  • THE FIRE STATION IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC AND ONLY BRIGADE MEMBERS ARE ALLOWED ON SITE

Many of you are scared and unsure about what you can do to make yourselves safe, so here are some handy tips :

  • WASH YOUR HANDS – WITH SOAP AND WARM WATER or ALCOHOL BASED HANDWASH
  • KEEP A 2 METRE DISTANCE OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN HOUSEHOLD
  • KEEP YOURSELF ISOLATED AT HOME
  • SEEK ADVICE IF YOU ARE ILL
  • CHECK ON YOUR ELDERLY NEIGHBOURS – A PHONE CALL IS OKAY
  • DO NOT PANIC BUY – THERE IS PLENTY TO GO AROUND
  • IF YOU NEED INFORMATION GO TO : https://covid19.govt.nz/

We don’t know what the future brings but 

WE ARE HERE AND WILL RESPOND, 

you can do your part by staying at home.

Be safe, Be kind
