The New Zealand Fire Service, launched a sobering campaign today via FCB, drawing attention to the importance of having smoke alarms by combining ink and ash from fire destroyed homes to print stories about recent house fires, which are running in newspapers throughout the country.
The New Zealand Fire Service has released two new ads, the first since FCB became its creative agency. The ads, part of a campaign called ‘Your only voice’ warn that a working smoke alarm is often one’s only voice to warn loved ones and friends of a fire.
After a creative pitch last year, it is thought the NZ Fire Service is set to appoint FCB as its creative agency. UPDATE: Ministry of Justice confirms it is also working with FCB.

And, in a hard-to-watch continuation of the ‘Could you live with yourself?’ idea, it’s released a new campaign to show that “a house fire can harm you, long after it’s out.”
