Let us all help to minimise fire risks in our communities!
The Nkomazi Team in Mpumalanga prioritised its safety by clearing dry grass at the base. This was done to help minimise the risk of fires in the surrounding areas.
“We usually visit schools and work closely with communities to educate them about ways to prevent unwanted fires. Today we implemented what we teach,” says Nhlanhla Madonsela, Nkomazi Base Communications Representative (BCR ).
As teams gear up for the upcoming Yellow Card Training and winter fire season, Madonsela says, “It is important that we are safe in order for us to be able to go out and protect our communities.”
The Nkomazi Base Team has 24 young men and women, all from the Nkomazi community.
