George Fire Department to host International Firefighters’ Day

Memories of the recent devastating fires that marred the Eden District will be forever etched on the collective consciousness of our community. Firefighters dedicate their lives to the protection of life and property. Sometimes that dedication is in the form of countless hours volunteered over many years and at times even their lives. 

 

On Friday, the 4th of May, the world celebrates International Firefighters’ Day where we honour the bravery and commitment of these individuals.  Proud Sponsor Oakhurst Insurance,  along with the greater George community will recognise the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. We call on the community to support the planned initiatives in which we pay tribute to current and past firefighters for their contributions.

 

We, as the George Fire Department, are very proud to be hosting our esteemed colleagues from various Fire Departments within the Western and Southern Cape region for International Fire Fighters Day and to share this day with our local community in honouring our firefighters. International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) is a time where the world’s community can recognise and honour the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. It is also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their contributions” says Neels Barnard – Responsible for fire services:  George Fire Department.

 

The weekend of festivities kicks off at 15:00 on Friday, 4 May, where the grand fleet of fire engines from the participating Fire Departments will be paraded through the streets of George. People from the entire Eden district are encouraged to dress in red and blue and to show their support as the motorcade with firefighters from the Western and Southern Cape district make their way down York Street.

 

On Saturday, the 5th of May, the firefighting teams will be showing their mettle in a series of simulated activities that they would face daily in the call of duty. Make your way to the Garden Route mall at 10:00 in order to witness these amazing athletes in action.  Commemorative ribbons will be on sale to raise funds on the day.  Activities will be concluded with a potjiekos competition among the various firefighting teams and is in aid of those in need.

 

This commemorative day which honours our brave firefighters is there to remind us of the critical role that both they and all the core Emergency Services play in so selflessly caring for us on a daily basis.  I look forward to seeing our local community coming out in droves to pay them homage, and amidst the festivities to also find time to quietly reflect and pay tribute to those who have sacrificed their lives in this very noble calling.” said Peter Grindlay – MD of Oakhurst Insurance.

 

Schools and businesses that would like to get involved in this special day of fun and excitement are encouraged to contact Edith from the George Fire Department on 044-801-6360
