Brian Gentil spoke with Chief Fire Officer Moe Stevens from Waihi Fire and Rescue about the calls they’ve attended over the last week.

Moe was pleased to report a quiet week with just two jobs.

The first was last Friday night, May 16, at 11.30 pm when a car failed to stop at the compulsory stop sign on the corner of Gilmour and Kenny Streets. They were heading up from the Tauranga Rd and went straight through the stop sign hitting a car traveling along Kenny St. The driver of that car was taken to hospital, while the driver of the other vehicle was taken to the police station Moe said.

The other call was on Sunday May 17. Just on 1 pm Waihi Fire & Rescue was called to help with the Rescue Helicopter landing at Morgan Park.

They were there to take an injured motorcross rider to hospital after a bad accident at the track at Black Hill, Waihi.

Moe also mentioned people seemed to be settling down with having rubbish fires at home after a big spike during Covid Alert Levels 4 and 3 while they were banned due to the drought, causing their volunteers to break their bubbles unnecessarily.
