The Waihi Fire & Rescue Service has dealt with seven call outs over the past week. Chief Fire Officer Moe Stevens spoke with Brian Gentil about them this morning.

There have been the usual false alarms and two rescue helicopters landed at Morgan Park on the weekend. It's still an event when this happens and families converge on the park to see the helicopter and watch it take off. A very young baby that was in distress was airlifted to hospital to be checked on Saturday.

On Sunday the helicopter was stood down after an elderly woman died after suffering a heart attack while travelling between Tauranga and Kaitaia.

Moe dispensed some great advice for holidaymakers to encourage them to keep safe. Have a listen. Click play and allow a few moments for the audio to open.
