Wither Hills Farm Park - track closures due to fire danger

The hot dry summer has forced the closure of most tracks in the Wither Hills Farm Park, including the Mountain Bike Park.

Due to the ‘very high to extreme’ fire risk conditions within the Farm Park, walkers and runners are asked to stay on the lower tracks around the town boundary only, and not to venture up the gullies or ridge paths.

Cyclists are asked to avoid the Mountain Bike Park as this area would be particularly dangerous in the event of a fire.

Stick to the lower tracks to avoid risk to yourself and to fire fighters.

Signs advising of the track closures have been installed at the Farm Park. The closure of these areas will apply at all times of the day.

Daylight Savings is coming, time to check your smoke alarms are working! Date Posted: Sep 3, 2019

Daylight saving starts when clocks go forward by 1 hour at 2am on 29 September 2019.

When was the last time you pushed the test button? If your smoke alarm is older than 10 years you should replace it. Check the date on the rear of the alarm.

There are some options when it comes to replacing smoke alarms, for example the 10 year long life battery or the standard 9 volt battery models that require replacing annually.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand’s recommendation is to purchase “Photoelectric Smoke Alarms” with a 10 year long life battery. These can be purchased from all hardware stores along with other retailers that sell smoke alarms.

For more useful information on smoke alarms click on the link.
