Hoogekraal Primary School, together with Outeniqualand Farmwatch, the Hoogekraal Community In Blue, the South African Police Service and the Community Police Forum on, 6 May 2023, held a “Draadkar” Festival near George. The Firefighters from Garden Route District Municipality (GRDM) presented a Fire Awareness and Education session to the community of Hoogekraal. As part of the session, the team explained and demonstrated the dangers of fires, how to prevent unwanted fires and how to respond to a fire that got ignited.
The activities were welcomed, as the firefighters used practical methods to ensure the community understood the topics that were presented to them.
It is envisaged that this initiative will become an annual event, whereby more community members and primary schools in the surrounding areas will be reached.
