Tairua Volunteer Fire Brigade

Emergencies

For any emergency dial 111.  Do NOT come to the fire station as it is not always manned.

The fire siren will sound each time there is a call out, but will normally stop after about one minute.  This is a normal warning to alert volunteer firemen.

 If the siren keeps sounding for a long period of time, that will be the warning for a possible tsunami.  Activate your personal evacuation plan.  If you are visiting, evacuate to higher ground.

Be prepared, regularly check your plan and emergency pack. Visit  http://www.getthru.govt.nz   for information ongetting ready to get thru!
