Community Development Workers (CDWs) attend FireSafe workshop

18 Mar,2017Training

Following the recent fires in the Southern Cape, Community Fire Awareness Officer Rayganah Rhoda conducted a FireSafe workshop for 20 Community Development Workers (CDWs) at the Calitzdorp Spa in the Kannaland Local Municipality.

Rhoda focused on community profiling to identify fire hazards within communities, fire management plans and defensible space around properties and communities.

“This forum is very important to us as the CDW is the link between the community and the municipality, as well as local government, so whatever workshops or presentations we bring to communities, our first point of contact would be the CDW. Community profiles are gathered from the CDW. Once we have these we can then put together a fire safety workshop that is customised to the community,” says Rhoda.
