Working on Fire Limpopo’s communications cluster attended the Letaba Show, the most well attended show in the Mopani District.

The Letaba Show targets all age groups in the communities of the surrounding areas.

WOF was given an opportunity to exhibit by the Letaba Fire Protection Association which sponsored the WOF stand at the showground.

This was WOF’s first attendance of the Letaba Show and the team managed to reach more than 20 schools in two days.

They educated visitors to the show about the impact of f i res, personal safety, climate change and provided many fire safety tips.

“We were honoured to be here. At our stall, we had an opportunity to educate learners and to share fire safety tips with the farmers and communities.  After this we will be moving around a lot as there’s a high need for our fire awareness workshop in various communities and organisations,” says Sello

Matlhare, the Community Fire Awareness Officer for Limpopo.

The Tzaneen Team, which does duty under the Letaba FPA, used their resources to demonstrate how to suppress a fire.

The team concluded the day with its famous drill.
