Dunedin heritage consultant Guy Williams photographs the roof of Dunedin's former prison from a Fire Service Bronto aerial appliance, with the help of Senior Station Officer Bob Calder.

Dunedin Prison Trust chairman Stewart Harvey said the survey of the front and side section of the slate roof and guttering was part of the trust's preventive maintenance plan and would also help inform its long-term specification plan. Keeping the building watertight and preventing further damage was paramount, he said.

The Fire Service used the event as a training exercise.
