Dispatcher Files

A call was received from an estate supervisor in Hillcrest reporting a small bush fire. He was afraid that it would spread and cause damage to neighbouring buildings. 

The fire department was within close proximity so I made the call and a few minutes later they arrived on scene and managed to extinguish the fire. Luckily the weather was cool as we know that wind probably has the biggest impact on a wildfire’s behaviour. High wind will cause the head of a fire to move rapidly. 

Well done to the team that was involved!

NOTE: South Africa has two fire seasons according to rainfall patterns, the dry summer months in the Western Cape, and the dry winter months in the rest of the country.
Often wildland fires are started by lightning or, in mountainous regions, by falling rocks. Most, however, are started by accident by people being careless with open flames and indifferent to the consequences of their carelessness. Uncontrolled fires pose a risk to life, property and the environment.
