Fire & Fynbos Awareness Day

Event Date: April 23 2017

As volunteer firefighters we battle the wildfires that sweep through, and ravage those precious areas, and we do that with great passion and dedication. Come meet our volunteers and other firefighting agencies - it promises to be a fun day out, with loads of activities for the whole family!

Kicking the day off will be our Race for Water 14km trailrun and 6km family run, both routes are circular, starting and finishing at Elsenburg, and both courses offer stunning views from the Simonsberg to Cape Town - got to to book your entry (Hot Tip: there are goody bags for the first 100 entrants per race). Then it’s non-stop entertainment for the children as they learn about fire, fire safety and firefighting. Fire Truck rides, Climbing and Abseiling, Pumps and Hoses, Snake Shows and interesting exhibitions are all part of the day.

A definite highlight will be the wildfire firefighting demonstrations – at 11:30 and 14:30 – showing what a VWS crew does best, as well as full aerial support from a Firefighting helicopter, and other firefighting agencies on the day.

Don’t leave hungry! Our volunteers and Friends of VWS Jonkershoek will provide a bustling food court and a tea garden throughout the day.
