FireSafe workshop inspires launch of forum

13 Oct,2016Fire Awareness, Fire Stories, WoF service

Community members and volunteers from Stellenbosch who previously attended FireSafe workshops and presentations hosted by Community Fire Awareness Officer, Rayganah Rhoda, have formed a Fire Awareness Forum for the Stellenbosch area.

Ten members of the forum, together with Rhoda, conducted their first doorto- door fire awareness campaign in the Raithby community.

The forum members aim to reach as many residents as possible, to ensure that the community of Stellenbosch remains fire free during the 2016/17 summer fire season.

“I encouraged community members to form a forum and continue to run with what they have learnt during the FireSafe workshops. It is important that we get our fire safe message out there as it will assist in saving lives and protecting the environment. I am proud of the team and I know that together we can make a difference within our communities,” says Rhoda.
