Brian Gentil spoke to Waihi Chief Fire Officer Moe Stevens to find out what made the local siren call out his firefighters to four incidents.
The first was on Wednesday 14 August at 10 am, where Waihi Fire & Rescue was called to assist Whangamata with the Waihi water tanker. It turned out to be a controlled burn off so they turned around at Whiritoa.
The next siren went off at 6 pm on Thursday August 15. This was to the Golden Cross Hotel where a guest in the shower had set the alarm off due to the steam getting too close to an alarm.
Then on Friday they had two calls. The first was at 7.40 am to OceanaGold in Martha St where an alarm was set off. Later that night at 9.45 pm the Waihi Fire & Rescue were called out to a medical assist.
