Fire Matters

The CRR FPA ran two information sessions in May and June. A talk on fires, and a practical on how to do a firebreak responsibly. A great turnout from all areas of the CRR, and an excellent learning session. Thank you to the CRR FPA!

The GDARDE fire teams have also been busy – completing fire breaks surrounding the Egoli Granite Grassland and Rietfontein offsets – thank you to the GDARDE Resource Management North for this significant added protection from wildfires.

The CRR FPA Doornrandje Cluster is currently overseeing the regional fire breaks. Residents in Doornrandje contribute to this important task every year and are supporting the costs of the equipment, labour and transport to complete the breaks.

The FPA held their AGM on 1 April 2023 which was well attended. The new Committee was elected with Marius Liebenberg appointed as Chairperson, Hans von Stockhausen as Deputy Chair, Gordon Hooper as Secretary and Carol-Lee Fowler, Communications and acting Treasurer. As a Member of the GSA, you are also a Member of the FPA. The GSA pays the FPA Membership Fee of R200 for Members that pay their monthly levy to the GSA. If you do not pay your levy, please ensure your annual FPA Membership fee is paid – it gives you legal protection in the case of fire damage caused negligently and is worthwhile.
