“Our presence here today is to ensure that fire fighters improve service in their line of duty to save lives of the people during fire incidents” explained Lindikuhle Ngubane of COGTA responsible for administering the Fire Brigades Services Act in Gauteng Province.  This was during the 2022 International Fire Day celebration which took place at the Evaton Fire Station on Thursday, June 30th.

One of the objectives of the event was to acknowledge the good work done by Firefighters in saving people's lives. Ngubane expressed her confidence in the municipality’s Fire Services citing that in the last financial year, COGTA gave the municipality a budget of R7,8 million which was put to good use.

“Today we are happy that Emfuleni Local Municipality (ELM) has purchased a new fire engine and skit, which comes with full equipment. As COGTA, we remain committed to conducting regular assessment of Emfuleni for the municipality’s state of readiness regarding fire services.”  Ngubane said.

The 2022 event hosted all five regions of the Gauteng Provincial Disaster Management in celebration of the International Fire Day. The day was both eventful and colourful, with the Emfuleni drill squad skills show off being the highlight of the celebration.

The Manager for Public Safety, Mr. Nnete Makhubo welcomed all people present on behalf of Cllr. Ndade Mokoena who was committed to other service delivery engagements in Ward 19.
