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

      Wanaka, New Zealand

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.

To:
Queenstown Lakes District Council
Gordon Bailey, Parks Manager
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.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This is very simple way to provide very important safety warning when needed. Why not have it when we leave in 2013!

      Smoke alarms (as recommended in all houses by the NZ Fire Service) can save a families life. In this case a fire alarm could help save a whole community, so how could it not be worthwhile.
