UMVOTI Fire Protection Association is appealing to the Umvoti community to be very aware of the dangers of fires with the start of the fire season on 1 June, compounded by the severity of the drought in the district.

UFP personnel urge everyone to practice fire awareness, be vigilant at all times and be extremely cautious when handling fire.

Farmers who still have unburnt brushwood are encouraged to complete this operation as soon as possible in view of the approaching weather systems. There is a strong possibility that the burning of brushwood is to cease on 20 May, giving farmers sufficient time to mop up before the commencement of the fire season on 1 June.

Please report all uncontrolled and control burning to Golf 911 on 033 417
