CWDM launches fire protection programme
Today, the Western Cape Province together with Cape Winelands District Municipality and other stakeholders launched the Provincial fire readiness initiative in Stellenbosch.
“I must emphasise that our readiness and response capabilities hinge on collaborative efforts. The Cape Winelands District Municipality, Local Municipalities, Cape Nature, the Winelands Fire Protection Association and the Western Cape Government play important roles in ensuring coordinated responses to fire incidents in our district. By pooling our resources and coordinating our efforts, we enhance our ability to effectively and efficiently manage fire-related challenges, thereby safeguarding lives, property, the environment, and livelihoods. Cape Winelands District Municipality remains committed to ensure the safety and well-being of our communities. Let us face the upcoming fire season with resilience, cooperation, and a shared determination,” said Dr Elna von Schlicht, CWDM Executive Mayor ahead of our hot and busy fire season.
