Community members prepared on dealing with disasters

24 Apr,2016Fire Awareness

Working on Fire in the North West Province in collaboration with the Kagisano-Molopo Local Municipality hosted a Disaster Awareness Campaign at the Ganyesa Tribal Hall. The main aim of the awareness was to make community members aware of disasters they may come across and prepare them to deal with the disasters in the event of one.

The Naledi Team presented an educational play in the form of drama about the dangers of fires. The team showed the community how to be fire safe and alert in case of any emergency. Type 1 Crew Leader, Pogiso Mabiletsa said their objective was to prepare the community for the upcoming winter fire season.

“We are pleased to be part of this disaster awareness campaign as the knowledge obtained here will assist community  members to take charge of emergencies while awaiting specialised assistance,” Mabiletsa concluded.

The campaign brought together many stakeholders including the Department of Social Development, Fire and Disaster, Health, Agriculture and Department of Water.
