Marlborough Kaikoura Fire and Emergency Bulletin

Home

Don't Assume Your Smoke Alarms are Working

Daylight saving starts when clocks go forward by 1 hour at 2am on 27 September 2020 and this is a timely reminder to check your smoke alarms.

As we know, working smoke alarms give people an early alert to fire in their home, and that early alert gives them the best chance of escaping alive.

  • Fire moves incredibly fast – a house fire can kill you in less than three minutes. Keep your smoke alarms in working order by pressing the button to check.
  • Smoke alarms cannot detect smoke through a closed door. We recommend installing a smoke alarm in every bedroom, hallway and living area.
  • Wherever possible, we recommend hard-wired and interconnected smoke alarms are installed.  For more information visit: https://fireandemergency.nz/at-home/smoke-alarms/
  • It is also important you check the expiry date on your smoke alarms. This is usually located on the bottom or side of the alarm.
  • Keep an eye on your elderly relatives, friends and neighbours too. Are they as safe from fire as they could be?  
  • Make a household escape plan so you can get out safely during a fire. For more information visit: www.escapemyhouse.co.nz

Annual Volunteer Reimbursement Date Posted: Feb 18, 2020

We know that when you volunteer with Fire and Emergency, you’re giving more than just your time – there are real costs involved such as petrol to get to and from the station for training and call-outs, phone calls you make to organise your crews and events, printing forms at home, not to mention the times you walked out of a movie you had just paid for five minutes after it started when the pager goes off.

If you missed the previous deadline, please complete the Annual Volunteer Reimbursement application form before 21 February 2020. We must receive your application by this date, so preferably complete it online, or email a scanned copy to [email protected]
