Fire awareness saves lives
As the year draws to a close, various teams in Mpumalanga say that despite the challenges they faced in 2016, conducting fire safe awareness campaigns remained the highlight of the year for them.
According to Loskop Base Communication Representative (BCR) Bongani Mthimunye, conducting fire awareness at primary schools forced him to reflect on his decision of becoming a firefighter.
“My heart was overwhelmed with love and appreciation for the support our team received at the Tagane and Kau Magane Primary Schools in Dennelton. The learners were attentive and engaging,” says Mthimunye.
He adds that his visit to the two schools “became a heart-warming reminder to us that our work indeed assists in saving lives.” Dipuo Ntswani of the Dullstroom Team said that conducting the awareness was a learning curve for her as she recognises that “we all have a role to play in protecting the environment.”
The teams say they are proud to participate in the WOF programme that assists in saving lives, restoring dignity and protects the environment.
