Potential Fire Hazards

If there's a fire hazard in your neighbourhood, Fire and Emergency New Zealand may be able to intervene to ensure the things which are causing the hazard are removed or minimised.

Fire hazard removal advice and assessment

Please talk to the property owner first to resolve the issue if possible. If this is unsuccessful, let us know by completing the fire hazard form below.

Note: We can only take action to deal with genuine fire hazards, and not untidy properties.

Contact your local council if the property presents a potential health risk; for example, if it provides a breeding ground for vermin (e.g. rats).

If you are worried that a current fire could cause loss of life, serious injury or loss of property please call 111 immediately to report a fire emergency.

Do not use this form to report an emergency.
