Fire and Rescue

Overview

Fires are a frequent occurrence in Witzenberg Municipality during summer. We rely on accurate fire call outs from the public to assist us with our management of these incidents. It is crucial that the caller identify what is burning and the level of progress of the fire, i.e. a structure and its size, an informal dwelling or shack and how many, a field or a mountain and the estimated area of the fire. This information allows us to plan and send adequate personnel and resources to address the situation. Callers also need to provide us an accurate location of where the fire is taking place.
