The Volunteer Wildfire Services (VWS) have been combating dangerous and often deadly runaway fires since being baptised through the devastating fires in 1999 / 2000 in Cape Town.
With approximately 180 members at three stations (Newlands, Jonkershoek and the newly developing South Peninsula Station), the VWS is now a highly organised Section 21 Company that is gaining in reputation every year passing. The VWS has assisted the Table Mountain National Park and CapeNature as a first responder with some of the wildest fires Cape Town has ever experienced.
Working closely with other emergency service organisations in wild-land fire management such as Table Mountain National Park, CapeNature, Cape Town Fire & Emergency Services, Disaster Management, Winelands Fire Brigade, Stellenbosch Fire Brigade and Working on Fire has meant that the VWS has, to date, achieved over 39,000 active fire fighting hours between it’s members and stations.
The VWS will, with your support, continue with the goal of saving South Africa’s natural heritage, property and lives.
