Basic Veld Fire Training

26. July 2014 by Ludger

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.

And ultimately we could gain some practice in using the fire beaters and other equipment.

Let’s keep fingers crossed,
that we will never need these skills to protect our place.
Nor that we need to help one of our neighbours to fight a real big fire.

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
