Campaign to reduce fires in communities

8 Apr,2017Fire Awareness

The Mamabolo participants in Limpopo initiated a campaign to educate and equip communities with fire safety information. The team conducted a door-to-door fire awareness exercise in communities in Maselana where they educated residents about how to protect their homes and properties during the upcoming fire season.

“Door-to-door fire awareness is important and beneficial to our society, especially as we are approaching the fire season. In winter people are robbed of their properties by the fires which start in their homes and we want to help them avoid such losses,” says Mapula Letsoalo, the Mamabolo Team Base Communications Representative.

Fire season can be devastating, especially if you are not prepared. The Mamabolo participants are making sure that their communities are safe and protected by regularly equipping them with knowledge and guidance on how to prevent unwanted fires from occurring and how to react to fire.

“Through all these campaigns we are saving lives and protecting our environment. Our goal is to have a high reduction of fires in our society,” says Letsoalo.
