Hokitika firefighers are on alert, but
not for fire — for measles.
Two fi refighters took part in the
annual Firefighter Sky Tower Stair
Challenge at the weekend. One
participant from Palmerston North has
since been confirmed as having measles.
Public health officers are now racing
to trace hundreds of people who may
have been exposed to the disease.
Hokitika chief fire officer Harry
Collett said two firefighters were sent
up to the Auckland challenge, and so
far they had not fallen ill.
“They’re normal, as we speak,” Mr
Chief medical officer Don Mackie
said a large number of people from
many parts of the country were
potentially exposed, and public health
units nationwide had been notified.
“If you are someone who thinks you
might have been at risk of exposure, it’s
important you contact your local public
health unit,” Dr Mackie said.
It usually takes 10 to 14 days for
someone who has caught measles to
show symptoms. Those who are not
immunised and may have been infected
will be advised to stay at home for 14
Measles is highly contagious, and can
be caught without direct contact as the
virus can stay in the air for up to an
Dr Mackie said the case showed how
important it was to be immunised, and
to check your immunisation status if
you are unsure.
Anyone who thinks they might have
been exposed should phone their GP or
Healthline on 0800 611 116 or advice.
It is important not to visit your doctor
without calling first to avoid infecting

Westland Milk Products has done
well to keep its forecast payout for the
2014-15 season on a par with Fonterra,
says Cape Foulwind dairy farmer John
Yesterday, Fonterra announced it had
lowered its forecast payout for this season
from $4.50 per kilogram of milk solids
to $4.40. A ‘fully shared up’ shareholder
would receive a dividend payout of 20-
30c a kilo, bringing the total payout to
$4.60 to $4.70.
Westland’s forecast payout was higher,
at $4.90 to $5.10, however that is not
what shareholders received in the hand.
Each season Westland Milk withholds a
percentage of the payout to invest into
the company to support its growth.
Last season, the company retained 30c
Mr Milne said it was good to see
Westland Milk matching Fonterra in
terms of the payout, especially given
Westland’s shortcomings the previous
Westland Milk was on a growth-
driven strategy that would hopefully pay
dividends for shareholders in the near
future, he said. Shareholders had high
expectations for the coming seasons in
terms of market competitiveness.
He hoped Westland Milk would not
let them down.
On Wednesday, Westland Milk chief
executive Rod Quin said he expected
