Given that hot, windy and dry weather conditions are to prevail for the foreseeable future, the risk of runaway veld fires is greater than ever this year.
Our Fire Brigade is prepared with full-time fire officers in all areas and a large contingent of volunteer fire fighters. Practices are held on a regular basis to prepare our fire fighters, but as the old adage goes: Prevention is better than cure.
Overstrand Fire Chief, Lester Smith, appeals to all residents and visitors to exercise extreme caution in as far as fires are concerned.
In case of an emergency please contact Overstrand Fire, Rescue & Disaster Management on 028 312 2400.
Also, please do report any suspicious activity immediately to your nearest police station or call Overstrand’s Law Enforcement on 028 313 8996 or 028 313 8000/8111.
