SBDM Sponsor Vehicles for Fire and Rescue Services
During the month of June the Sarah Baartman District Municipality has handed-over vehicles and equipment for fire and rescue services to Ndlambe Municipality, Blue Crane Route Municipality and Makana Municipality. This is part of the District's commitment to protecting the lives of its citizens, livestock and natural resources through ensuring that local municipalities are well equipped to respond to disaster effectively.
Household fires are one of the biggest problems in our district. These fires are mostly caused by candles and stoves which are left unattended. Community members are urged to ensure candles are blown out and stoves are turned off before they go to bed or leave the room.
