  • Be vigilant, do not light any open fires and do not leave any fires unattended;
  • Contact the relevant authorities, as Working on Fire firefighters will remain on high alert and will be ready to provide firefighting services to landowners and municipalities;
  • In the event of fire, livestock should be moved out of grazing land to unbarred land/ploughed fields for safety;
  • If water is not available in sufficient quantities or at adequate pressure for the control of major fires; sand or other loose mineral soil material can be an effective method of control;
  • Contact the Consult and keep track of the daily Fire Danger Index (FDI) warnings issued by the South African Weather Service.
