On Sunday around 1pm the Katikati Volunteer Fire Brigade was called to assist Omokoroa brigade at an accident where a car had crossed the road and hit a bank.
The car was extensively damaged but no injuries to people sustained. Both brigades carried out traffic control until the scene was made safe.

The brigade was called to an alarm activation midmorning last Thursday on Tetley Rd. However, workmen using a water blaster had accidentally set the alarm off by getting water into the fire panel.

In the evening of Tuesday, November 20 the brigade was called to assist Omokoroa at an alarm activation at Pahoia School. However no fire could be found. There was no action by the brigade.
