The Western Cape Communications Cluster hosted a three-day training programme at the Mizpah Youth Centre in Grabouw, to enable 26 participants to become Base Communication Representatives (BCRs).

The Base Communication Representative is the direct communication/awareness link between management and bases.

During the training, BRCs received training in writing skills, presentation skills and etiquette, photography, resource management, coordination of school and community-based fire awareness activities, base profile management and community and fire awareness workshop training.

Following the pilot programme which took place in November 2015, the Western Cape now has 32 active BCRs across the province.
