Who We Are

The Volunteer Wildfire Services (VWS) has been combating dangerous and sometimes deadly runaway fires since its baptism through the devastating fires in 1999 / 2000 in Cape Town.

With over 250 members at four stations (Newlands, Jonkershoek, South Peninsula and the newly developing Grabouw Station), VWS is a highly organised Non-Profit Organisation, run and managed by a team of volunteers as well as a recently employed General Manager. The VWS has assisted Table Mountain National Park, CapeNature, Overberg District Municipality and Winelands District Municipality with some of the wildest fires Cape Town and the Western Cape have experienced.
