International Firefighters’ Day- Grand Parade and a fun - filled day of Team Challenges

George Fire Department is gearing up for  International Firefighters’ Day with celebrations kicking off on Friday 4th May at 15h00 with a Grand Parade of over 30 fire-fighting vehicles drawn from Fire Departments across the Western and Southern Cape. The public are encouraged to come out to watch this impressive parade and to wear red and blue in support and recognition of the sacrifices that our firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are kept safe.

 

There will be no road closures during the parade which will start at the R102 (Pacaltsdorp Traffic Circle), move down York Street - stop briefly in front of the Civic Centre at 15h30 where the vehicle procession will be joined by a drilling platoon  - move up to the York Street Circle into Courtenay Street, and right into Mission Street. From there the parade will go into the Rosemore, Conville and Pacaltsdorp areas. Traffic flow will be slightly delayed and the George Fire Department requests the public’s patience during this time.

 

On Saturday, the 5th of May, 8 firefighting teams including one ladies team will showcase their skills with challenges such as the “Hose Roll”, the “Fireman’s Carry” and the “Tyre-flip”. The public is welcome to attend the event being held at the Garden Route mall from 10:00 – 16h00. Come and see our very own George Fire Department in action. Demonstrations will include an extrication from a vehicle accident, fire-fighting vehicles on display and a potjiekos competition with 6 teams taking part. The food prepared will be donated  to a worthy cause by the Fire Departments.

 

The George Fire Department is proud to be hosting the  various Fire Departments within the Western and Southern Cape region for  International Fire Fighters Day and to share this with our local community in honouring our firefighters.  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.
