Last year’s joint projects
Safe as Houses Our home safety assessments and street BBQs raise safety awareness and give tips for reducing falls, fires, crime and being prepared for natural hazards. To avoid tripping over, tuck your power cords away and secure them. Coffee with a Cop Bringing police officers and the community together, over a hot drink, to discuss issues and learn more about each other. Held at seven Napier locations on International Coffee with a Cop day, with 262 hot drinks shared. Safe Routes to School Local schools, Council and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency are working together to improve three busy intersections on Napier Hill so more students can safely walk, scooter and cycle to school. Remember to drive safely around schools. Look Out For Your Neighbour This campaign encourages people to reach out and connect with their neighbours, especially those who live alone or who are older. Check in and say ‘hi’ to your neighbours today. Alcohol Free Zones and Events To encourage family friendly zones and events, we developed a local alcohol free brand. Events can contact www.ourhealthhb.nz/community-services/healtheducation-resources-napier-health/ to borrow resources such as beanbags, flags and umbrellas.
