PLETT VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS COMMENDED BY MAYOR MEMORY BOOYSEN AND PATRICIA DE LILLE

Four local volunteer firefighters who are very passionate about what they do, took it upon themselves to travel to Cape Town in order to assist with runaway veld fires.

Local donations and own funding made it possible for Messrs; Ian Barnard, Eben van Huyssteen, Steve Myburgh and Josh Martin to make their way to Cape Town.

On arrival they reported at Lakeside fire station and were immediately deployed to Tokai Forest. Upon arrival at the Tokai command post, they were assigned to Senior Fire Fighter Jonker of the Strand fire department, and they proceeded to their area of responsibility.

They spent 25 hours fighting flare ups in the Tokai Manor area. One particular flare up was quite serious and threatened a nearby spa. Due to quick response they were able to avert disaster and control the flare up before any further damage could be done.

By the next morning all fire fronts were under control and able to be managed by local fire services.

On Friday 27 March 2015, Mayor of Cape Town Patricia De Lille visited the Bitou Fire Department to thank these brave Plett residents for all their efforts, hard work, and much needed assistance.

Mayor De Lille said “It is due to heroic and patriotic acts like this, that makes me proud to be a South African citizen.”

Mayors Booysen and De Lille and Acting Municipal Manager Mr Reginald Smit, handed over Certificates of Gratitude to the firefighters and thanked them for going beyond the call of duty.
