The Duiwenhoks Conservancy has decided, based on the discussion at the AGM in April 2011, to purchase a small fire fighting tank, pump and hose suitable to be transported on the back of a bakkie. The fire equipment has been purchased mainly for Conservancy members but is available for emergency fire use if required by members of the wider Vermaaklikheid community. A certain amount of training in the use and care of the equipment will be required and the Conservancy will organise such a training session later in the year.
The following “rules” will apply to the use of the equipment:
1. The equipment will be stored at John Stanbridge’s house.
2. John is NOT the local firefighter – if the equipment is required, the person must bring their own bakkie.
3. The equipment is to be only used for firefighting.
