The Council is starting a "Take another look at intersections"
campaign this week. Over the past 5 years, 37% of all
crashes recorded in Selwyn District have happened at
intersections. 446 recorded crashes resulted in 3 fatalities,
while 61 people received serious injuries and 240 people
New billboards, adver tising, and road safety resources will
be used to increase driver awareness of the basic rules
that apply at intersections. They are designed to reduce
the number and severity of intersection crashes in Selwyn
Simple messages like "take another look at intersections"
and "stop means stop! No excuses, no exceptions" are
used to support the campaign. Call in to a Council library
or service centre to pick up your free note pad or pen.

Prohibited Fire Season
A PROHIBITED FIRE SEASON remains in force over the whole of
the Selwyn District until further notice.
During the Prohibited Fire Season, it is an offence to light any fires in
the open air. The prohibition does not apply to gas barbeques lit on a property
serviced by a high-pressure water supply.
Minimise Fire Risk
The fire risk in Selwyn continues to remain high. There are a number of steps
you can take to reduce the risk of fire starting or spreading on your property:
• keep a clear space between your house, and buildings and vegetation like
trees, shrubs and long grass, to act as a fire break. Keep this space watered
and green if possible or construct it from non-flammable material like paving
• make sure your property number is easy to see, and that it has a clear
access-way four metres wide and high so that fire services can easily access
your property if needed
• keep a hose connected that can reach round the house
• store firewood and other flammable materials away from the house
• regularly check and maintain machinery and equipment so it is safe to
• dispose of ashes safely in a metal container and use approved incinerators
• keep grass away from under hedges
Check you have adequate insurance cover for fire -- it should include cover for
fire damage, fire fighting and public liability insurance.
