Basic Veld Fire Training

We learned the basic rules of Veld fire management and fighting.

We had our permanent staff and two temporary staff with us. And after a 90 minutes lecture we did get a demonstration of the firefighting tools and how to organise ressources.

Although the fires our fire chief did light to excercise with were pretty small, you could feelĀ  what heat a veld fire does create, and how arkward it is working in the smoke
