The Aganang Team responded to the call of duty at WF Knobel Hospital in Aganang Municipality, where they assisted the hospital to remove water that flooded the hospital during the recent heavy rains that were experienced in the province.

“Our responsibility is not only responding to fires or implementing integrated fire management. We also save lives and restore dignity to the communities that we operate in,” says Elliot Mokobodi, the Base Communications Representative at AganangBase in Limpopo.

“We worked very hard with the hospital personnel to prevent the flood water from causing damage to the hospital. We worked as a team and managed to clear the water inside the theatre department,” says Mokobodi.

The team’s intervention limited damage to the proper ty and risk to the patient wards.
