Eastern Cape fire hotspot has no more fires

10 Sep,2015WoF and Dept of Env Affairs

A fire hotspot in recent years, Keiskammahoek in the Eastern Cape, has recorded no fires in the current fire season thanks to the fire awareness education by Working on Fire.

Community Fire Awareness Officer, Wongama Copiso, applauded the community of Gwiligwili for taking fire awareness education serious.

“We encouraged communities and landowners to work very closely with our teams and they continue to spread information to others,” Copiso explained.

Copiso said that the launch of the EPWP phase 3 has actually made people aware of the importance of Working on Fire programme in their lives.

“The local Chief of the community has also extended his gratitude for the work of WoF in having brought the fires down to zero”, Copiso said.
