Firefighters, our heroes!

Unread post by DinkyBird » Tue Jan 17, 2017 12:10 am

I see in the press that again there is a serious fire burning on Table Mountain. The past weeks, Cape Town and surrounds have battled devastating fires.

Our focus is often on the brave rangers fighting poaching, and we forget that there are many other heroes out there who also risk their lives, and work long hard hours, to protect our National Parks, and surrounds.

Thank you to the SANParks firefighters, and to all those who assist them. You are our heroes!

It is dangerous work and they really do risk their lives each time they go out to a blaze.
