A busy fire season is anticipated in Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) in the months ahead, according to SANParks. This is due to the particularly dry and windy weather conditions during November. The TMNP fire crews are assisted by crews from the government-funded Working on Fire (WoF) programme as well as two medium-size helicopters stationed at the SANParks Fire Base at Newlands. “They are on high alert and all resources will be dispatched immediately when a fire call is received from anywhere within the park,” said a statement by SANParks. Due to an agreement signed between TMNP and the WoF Programme, TMNP will also be able to call in additional resources, including hand crews as well as helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, when necessary.SANParks urged the public to immediately report all fires in TMNP to 0861 106 417 or the City of Cape Town Fire Services on 021 480 7700.
