Overstrand firefighters have been hard at work during the last few months preparing for the 2018 summer fire season, which usually starts in November.

An integrated fire awareness campaign will kick-start the season on 12 October to implement fire wise principles for protecting people and property and to teach communities about the dangers of fire and what to do in the event of a fire.

Fire is, after all, EVERYone’s fight.

Residents are asked to be vigilant – particularly during dry, windy days and to report fires immediately so that help can be dispatched as soon as possible.

In case of an emergency please contact Overstrand Fire, Rescue & Disaster Management on 028 312 2400.

Be sure to save the number on your cell phone and to teach it to your children!
