In these news articles we give the people information about the SCFPA, its advantages and how we can assist, as well as highlights of recent fires, prevention strategies, acknowledgements, training, threats etc. We usually post in the following newspapers and/or websites: Suid-Kaap forum, George Herald Express, Knysna-Plett Herald, AgriEDEN website, AgriEco, Landbouweekblad, Working on Fire newsletter and website. As well as EDEN FM radio station.
