We are experiencing very high temperatures with strong winds predicted. It does not mean that because of the heavy rains we have experienced over the last few months that we do not need to take the necessary precautions in preventing fires and are therefore re-publishing the article below.

Fires are becoming an increasing problem in the Western Cape. The Overstrand annually has its own growing number of fires. Unfortunately the three conservancy villages of Betty’s Bay, Pringle Bay and Rooiels experience the same tendency. The biggest problem in these areas is to marry the concept of being fire wise with that of preserving the natural environment.

Although this seems to be a conflicting goal it is achievable if all of us just follow the fire wise guidelines as set out in the Firewise booklet posted to every property owner in 2008 when the three little towns became the first Firewise villages in South Africa.
