Port Hills fire and health advice
Canterbury District Health Board's Community and Public Health Division have issued a health warning to residents over the smoke coming from the Port Hills fires.
Officials say the small particles in smoke can be more harmful than the larger particles because they can be inhaled deep into the lungs.
Health officials are warning residents to close windows and doors.
Here are some tips from Community and Public Health if you are close to the fires:
In healthy people, most symptoms disappear soon after exposure to smoke ends and do not cause long-term health problems. Public health officials are urging residents to make their GP team the first call 24/7 for #carearoundtheclock.
Seek medical help if your symptoms worsen, especially if you have asthma, lung or heart disease, or if you start to experience breathlessness or chest pain. If you did not experience any symptoms at the time you were exposed to the smoke, you are very unlikely to have any long-term health effects. In an emergency phone 111.

Kia ora koutou,
We wanted to check in and see how you are all doing following the earthquakes in North Canterbury?
Needless to say, it’s been a busy time for the All Right? team. We are providing relevant messages, information and resources to help support people with their wellbeing both here and in North Canterbury.
On our website you’ll find practical tips for coping with a disaster (also attached), along with aroha messages from Cantabrians to those in the most affected areas. The Mental Health Foundation also have a list of earthquake resources.
And remember, it’s all right to talk about it – the Earthquake Support Line is available to people nationwide on 0800 777 846.
