The Eastern Cape Fire Awareness Facilitator, Thulani Mkhosi, recently conducted fire awareness for Upper Zeleni community members.

The aim was to educate community members about the Working on Fire programme and how it works to prevent and suppress unwanted fires.

Residents also learned how to identify fire risks and how to minimise them.

“The province is already in the winter fire season. Community members need to learn about fire prevention so that they can prevent unwanted fires,” Mkhosi says.

He urged community members to remove dry leaves and overhanging tree branches around their homes as these can help fuel fires and cause damage to property.

“Community members must make sure they dispose of cigarette butts safely and be sure they put them out before disposing of them,” says Mkhosi.
