Dispatcher Files

What to do when veld fire conditions are forecast: 

  1. Refrain from starting fires in the open air during periods of high fire hazard. 
  2. The establishment of formal fire control committees is extremely helpful.
  3. To control fires that may arise, an alarm system, fire-fighting teams, and beaters can be organised in advance and plans prepared for when fires do break out.

What to do during a veld fire:

  • Livestock should be moved as soon as possible out of grazing land to a ploughed field for safety. 
  • Water is often not available in sufficient quantities or at adequate pressure for the control of such fires, however sand or other loose mineral soil material can actually be an effective method of fire control as well.
