WOF Fire Awareness continues despite COVID19 restrictions

14 October, 2020

Working on Fire has endeavoured for over 17 years to create communities resilient to wildfires, through implementing Integrated Fire Management principles. Our national footprint, partnerships and FireSafe methodology are the core of our success. They, in turn, have trained and empowered firefighters and High Altitude Team (HAT) members to conduct and facilitate lessons aligned to the CAPS curriculum for learners and educators, as well as community outreach activities.

We conduct frequent research to ensure our content, methodologies and techniques are current and relevant to our communities. The Fire Awareness Department has produced numerous educational materials and resources to supplement our training and workshops over the past decade and a half.

Our sound partnerships and collaborations with communities, the public and private sectors over the past 17 years are pivotal to the success of our impact and reach. In light of the COVID-19 restrictions, we are bolstering our online platforms to ensure we can maintain and expand our FireSafe efforts to communities and stakeholders.

I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to my Fire Awareness team, who have shown heart and dedication in all they do. Their ability to show creativity, adapt to challenges and innovate has enabled us to always offer the best programme to our stakeholders.
