Fire is everybody’s fight. Help us prevent and control wildfires.
FARM & LAND MEMBERS
If you are a farm owner or a landowner in the Overberg, you can become a goFPA member. Membership is voluntary for private landowners, and when you sign up, you’ll receive all the support the goFPA team offers our members – through integrated fire management assistance. There is a joining fee and annual fee to join as a member. Government departments, municipalities and conservation authorities who own land in the Overberg must become goFPA members.
Members will form part of a Fire Management Unit – a grouping of landowners who will manage fire across their units together.
