WILDERNESS

FIRST RESPONDERS

We are trained to operate in wilderness areas as Wilderness First Responders, wildland firefighters and wilderness search and rescue members.

 

Many of us live in peri-urban areas either in or on the periphery or urban/wildland interface with the Table Mountain National Park. Wildfires are part of our lives. They often spill over in the adjacent suburbs. This means we have to help fight fires, often house fires, and in severe cases informal settlement fires.

Our members are trained so as to ensure that are always in a position to assist no matter where they find themselves.

We train every weekend at a time that suits the members in a specific area. This practical, ongoing ‘’on-the-job’’ orientation and training helps to keep everyone on point as far as implementing what they learn in formalized skills courses.
