Free State Teams ready for fire awareness campaigns

10 Feb,2016Fire Awareness

The Free State Teams have a plan to up their game and be among the best when it comes to fire awareness campaigns in the country.

With the help of the Fire Awareness Training Officer and the Community Fire Awareness Officer, things are looking bright. The Crew Leaders and the officers have created a whatsapp group where they share ideas and challenges.

This way they are able to align their awareness with monthly themes because those are some of the discussions in the group. Teams like Dewetsdorp, Memel, Kroonstad and Clarens as well as Ficksburg have already showed their seriousness about awareness.

The Clarens Team visited the Clarens Combined School where they taught learners about soil erosion. They also took them up the mountains to show them how the soil eroded areas looked like.

Crew Leader from Kroonstad Team, Monde Ntobela, said his team is eyeing the first position in the province and they would get it. “It is just the beginning, watch the space,” he told his colleagues in the team. On the other hand Delani Sibeko of Memel base said this was his team’s year to do the best.
