Two Free State firefighters, Thabang Moeletsi and Monde Ndobela, recently received high praise from Working on Fire Managing Director, Trevor Abrahams, for their selfless actions in helping a fellow firefighter, Gaecious Malake, who was injured on the fire line during the Knysna fires in June.

“Your heroic and decisive decision making on 14 June 2017, while assisting Gaecious when a tree fell on him during fire suppression activities in Knysna, portrays the safety consciousness and teamwork that we value here at Working on Fire,” Abrahams said.

“Your ability to remove the tree and stabilise Gaecious before moving him to get medical treatment makes you heroes in our eyes.”
