The City of Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management Centre (DRMC) has paid tribute to its volunteers.

The event was held on Saturday, and was the City’s 17th annual awards ceremony.

A total of 35 volunteers were honoured for reaching various long-service milestones equalling 295 years of service.

In addition, 17 certificates of appreciation and commendation were handed over to individuals for their contribution to the volunteer corps.

The recipients were from Athlone, Atlantis, Belhar, Fish Hoek, Macassar, Melkbosstrand, Milnerton, Mitchell’s Plain, Ottery and Scottsdene.

“The City is in the enviable position of having nearly 400 active DRMC volunteers who devote their time and energy towards the organisation’s safety and security efforts. They put in hundreds of hours each month, assisting with everything from humanitarian relief coordination efforts to assisting firefighting efforts in summer and even the installation of smoke detectors in Khayelitsha at the beginning of December.

We could not achieve what we do as an administration without them and I personally would like to thank each and every one of our volunteers for their selfless dedication to a greater cause,” said Mayco member for safety and security JP Smith.
