Setsoto FM listeners learn about what WoF can offer
The Free State Community Fire Awareness Glodinah Mofokeng shed some light about who Working on Fire is and how it can benefit the community. The discussion with thousands of listeners was broadcasted live at a Ficksburg based community radio station, Setsotso FM.
The listeners learned that they can benefit from freely offered fire awareness and fire safe workshops that are conducted by WoF’s fire awareness officers throughout the country where community members are taught how to protect themselves from fires.
She also shared a personal story of how she has moved up the ranks within the programme through the various opportunities the programme provides. “I started in the company as a fire fighter, I was then promoted to a health and safety assistant of the province,” said Mofokeng.
A year later she then got promoted to a community fire awareness officer who is responsible for educating communities in the Free State about being safe from fires.
Assistant Regional Manager Masello Koao also answered some ground operation questions about how fire fighters are able to face obstacles when on the fireline. She told the presenter that the world class training they get before they become fire fighters prepares them to face any challenges they may come across with when fighting fires.
