All firefighting agencies are working together to put out the South Peninsula fire - could you say the same for your company?

by , 05 March 2015
The South Peninsula fire is still burning. As the City of Cape Town said, all its firefighting agencies are working together to put out the South Peninsula fire.

More precisely, the City's JP Smith declared that firefighters were currently focused on several hotspots, namely Lower Constantia Nek, the upper Tokai area, Clovelly, Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay, Hout Bay and Noordhoek:


"A total of six helicopters are water-bombing hotspots, including two paid for by the City of Cape Town, two from Table Mountain National Park and two Oryx helicopters from the South African National Defence Force (SANDF). Working on Fire sourced an additional 150 staff members who have been deployed with other ground crews."


It's great to see so many people working together. But can you say the same for your company?
