Install emergency fire warning siren/s for Mount Iron Community WANAKA

The Mount Iron Community is at risk to fire hazards, we believe a siren would be a valuable alert tool to get residents and visitors to safety quickly. Some areas are at such risk, they are considered to be living in a 'Dead Man Zone' which means if a fire did occur, no rescue workers would be able to help - they literally would have to wait until the fire passes.......so early warning is essential for residents and visitors to get to safety. Cell phone coverage is poor in the area, we strongly believe a siren is the best solution.

Letter to
Queenstown Lakes District Council
Parks Manager Gordon Bailey
I support the installation of an emergency fire warning siren/s for the Mount Iron Community, Wanaka.

I believe this is the best solution for alerting residents and visitors in the area, please include this in the Mount Iron Fire Emergency Response Plan.
