Submitted by admin2 on Sat, 08/01/2022 - 6:58pm

Good morning everyone from the Far North. Today at the Waiharara fire we have 64 firefighters on the ground, they are being supported by the same number of support staff. The support staff range from the Incident Management Team to helicopter pilots and heavy machinery operators. We also have nine pieces of heavy machinery and four helicopters and another one available. Everyone plays a crucial role in the management of this fire. Yesterday a predicted easterly wasn't as strong as first thought, but it does appear as if some wind from the east is starting to come through this morning.

Morena. You may have noticed the Ministry of Health announcement yesterday of 1 new case in Northland.

This resulted from a repeat Covid test taken from a known Auckland case that had already completed their isolation period in Northland.

This will be classified as a ‘historic case’ at our end when all the contacts of the case have completed their isolation periods.

We therefore continue to see no new cases in Northland.

Below are some YouTube videos which were released today….. helpful for people we come into contact witH.
