Stay dili­gent

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Auck­land’s open fire re­stric­tions are still in place de­spite rain­fall across the re­gion. Fire per­mits are still needed by those light­ing fires out­doors. Per­mits are free but can take three to five days to is­sue. Prin­ci­pal ru­ral fire of­fi­cer Bryan Cartelle says Auck­lan­ders should re­main dili­gent ‘‘even if it may look safe to light a fire’’. Any­one who is sus­pi­cious of an open fire or smoke should call the fire ser­vice on 111. The pro­hib­ited fire sea­son on Hau­raki Gulf also re­mains in place.
