Fire evacuation in Downtown Auckland

An excellent response to the fire emergency at the ClearPoint building in Downtown Auckland today. All occupants evacuated and assembled in the designated areas in accordance with Safety First's emergency procedures. There were 14 fire trucks and 60 firefighters on the scene.

Well done to the wardens for their efforts today during the evacuation. We are happy that everyone got out safely and in doing so confirmed the value of having regular practises and training.

The fire was believed to have been caused by an electrical fault. Read the full NZ Herald article here.
