Fuel load reduction the key to fire prevention

20 Dec,2016Fire Awareness, WoF service

Working on Fire Limpopo’s Tzaneen Team is working around the clock implementing an Integrated Fire Management system for landowners in the Tzaneen area.

When not responding to the fires, the Tzaneen Team conducts fire awareness at the local schools surrounding their base and helping landowners to be fire safe. Since the winter fire season was declared over, the WOF participants have been implementing integrated fire management systems for the landowners.

They are also assisting landowners to comply with the National Veld and Forestry Act by creating firebreaks for them.

Though the 2016 fire season has ended, the team decided to start with the firebreaks as early as possible to be able to work at a normal pace, cover more ground and assist more landowners.
