FireSafe workshop for emerging farmers

6 Apr,2017Fire Awareness

Mpumalanga Community Fire Awareness Training Officer Mbuso Siwela conducted a FireSafe workshop with a group of emerging farmers from the Sheepmoor community in Ermelo focusing on fire prevention and fire mitigation.

“The purpose of the workshop was to educate the farmers on how to prevent and manage unwanted fires on their farms,” says Siwela.

He educated the farmers about how to develop fire risk assessment plans and to draw up fire management plans.

“As the 2017 winter fire season approaches, I am targeting high-risk communities to help reduce the number of unwanted fires across the province,” says Siwela.
