Dispatcher Edwin, Administrator Ivina, Base Manager Queen and Permit Officer Nomchebo recently joined the LEFPA crew on a burning project.
Andre Scheepers said: “This was an opportunity for them to personally experience the procedure and process that takes place once they have issued a burning permit. They were also shown what type of burning operation they have given a permit for, in this case, it was a slash burn.”
The group witnessed first-hand the Fire Danger expected on that day and what impact the FDI has on a specific burning operation as well as fire behaviour. There is nothing like the lesson of practical experience to provide insight into the vital role played by every member of the LEFPA team.
