NOORDHOEK, HOUT BAY, SILVERMINE, BOYES DRIVE, TOKAI:
Since the early hours of Monday morning, 02 March, NSRI teams from Hout Bay, Kommetjie and Simonstown assisted our colleagues at Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services, WOF (Working On Fire) volunteers, VWS (Volunteer Wildfire Services) and the emergency services with logistics, base support, feeding stations and fire crew rotations and yesterday, Tuesday, 03 March, NSRI Bakoven volunteers joined in the effort.
NSRI volunteers from Bakoven, Hout Bay, Kommetjie and Simonstown, all trained in Fire Fighting, were requested to actively get involved in physically fighting the fire and have been able to relieve fire fighters on their rotating crew shifts actively manning fire trucks, fire hose points, rolling out and rolling up fire hoses and assisting with the clearing of fire breaks.
NSRI teams rotated shifts at Hout Bay, Silvermine, Noordhoek, Tokai and at Boyes Drive.
The effort deployed by NSRI teams from stations around the Cape Peninsula has continued into Wednesday morning, 04 March, with NSRI crews rotating shifts to assist in this massive fire fighting effort that is continuing.
