Many marae visited missing smoke alarms - firefighters

From Morning Report, 7:49 am on 12 June 2019

Fire and Emergency says more than half of the marae they've visited don't have smoke alarms and very few have sprinklers, putting the marae and taonga inside it - in some cases worth millions - at risk.

The investigation into Sunday morning's devastating blaze at Wellington's Tapu Te Ranga marae includes looking at whether its fire alarm system was effective.
