WOF KZN awards its top achieving fire awareness teams

11 Apr,2017Training

The Working on Fire KwaZulu-Natal Fire Awareness Department has recognised the best performing teams that conducted fire awareness programmes from the third quarter of the 2016/2017 year with awards.

The Utrecht, Thurlow and Umzimkhulu Teams were recognised for doing the most fire awareness programmes in the province. The province experienced fewer fires last year, due to the Integrated Fire Management activities conducted in the province, including fire awareness initiatives.

KZN Fire Awareness Officer Khulani Zulu says, “I am very proud of my teams for striving for excellence and in seeing to the needs of their communities to try to protect and prepare them for the fire season.”

Utrecht took first place for conducting 177 fire awareness activities, second place went to Thurlow for 43 fire awareness actvities and Umzimkhulu with 27 fire awareness activities took third place. “We are very happy that our hard work as a team is recognised by our managers. It motivates us to identify opportunities to reduce fires in our communities,” says Thurlow Base Communications Representative, Sfiso Hlela.

“We encourage communities to invite us to areas that need more attention in reducing fires in the area so that we can help them improve fire awareness,” says Zulu.
