Sprinkler system would have saved hotel
18 January 2000

A Taihape landmark - the New DB Hotel - would not have been burned down if sprinkler systems had been installed, Fire Safety Officer Charlie Turei said today.

Mr Turei, from the Western Fire Region, said the publican had remarked on just how quickly the fire had spread. “This would not have happened if sprinklers were installed.”

Fortunately, the publican had sought advice from the Fire Service in November last year. He updated his evacuation scheme and as a result was able to get his family and a hotel resident out of the hotel without injury.Mr Turei said the service advised the publican about a sprinkler system at the time. “He did everything else right and no-one was hurt as a result. Unfortunately the hotel was so badly damaged by the fire that it has had to be demolished.”

“It’s very fortunate that no-one was hurt in the blaze, but very frustrating to see yet another landmark destroyed unnecessarily.

“The cost of installing sprinklers is just a fraction of the cost of rebuilding. And there’s also the impact on a town of losing an important landmark,” Mr Turei said.

Fire Safety Officers were able to assist building owners on the best way to make their buildings as fire safe as possible, he said.
