Get involved: Here’s how you can help

It’s all hands on deck during a fire. Including YOURS!

During the Fire Season in the Overberg, we often have multiple fires burning across the district.
Resources are stretched.
Fire-fighters are tired.
Help is often needed.

 

That’s where our Overberg residents and visitors play a vital role. You can get involved by providing goods to energise our fire-fighters.

BUT: We are quite specific about those goods that are helpful.

Here’s a list of non-perishable items you can drop off – that help sustain our
fire-fighters working hard to protect our homes and nature.

Instant coffee (we’ll make the coffee at the station)

Boxes of unopened long-life milk

Rusks

Flasks with boiling water

Unopened bottled water

Unopened packets of biltong

Energy bars and trail mix

Tinned foods

Cans of cooldrink like Coke

Packets of nuts (mark it, for those firefighters with nut allergies)

Cellphone airtime (our firefighters must let their families know they’re safe)

Sunblock

Eye-drops

Plasters and other medical supplies

Please rather don’t bring:

– Perishable goods like sandwiches
– Any opened tins or water bottles

Our drop-off points are the Fire Stations in each town:

Bredasdorp:

74 Long Street

Caledon:

 5 Trinity Street

GRABOUW:

Two-a-Day Group; Acacia Street

HERMANUS:

2 Mussel Road

SWELLENDAM:

Ashton Road

You can also get involved by donating
to our fire-fighters. 

All monies raised go to fire-fighters, to help make the fire lines more bearable. The funds are used to: 
– Buy cellphone airtime to let families know they’re safe
– Buy foodstuffs like ice to keep drinks cold
– Buy a hearty, restaurant take-away meal after a hard day’s work and other essentials.
