AND THE FIRE THREAT CONTINUES
During this fire week the road to Sir Lowry's Pass was closed due to a horrific accident and the R 44 was closed due to the smoke and poor visibility. The next morning…. the rock falls. So now you can imagine how frustrating it was for people trying to get to Pringle Bay . The fire was cornered off at the corner of Rooi Els on the side facing Gordons Bay just before the lagoon area on the R44 .
I could go on and on and tell everyone how sad everything is, but we have to stay positive
after all we do live in a
Biosphere and we have to protect this heritage.
So let's rewind and tell everyone what we are all about and to bring you up to date with the latest news.
Firstly we are only here to serve this community and we are bunch of chaps who can only put our best foot forward and serve the community.
We are team of 5 members (known as the Pringle Bay Volunteer Community Fire Fighters) and we have a 2x4 bakkie which holds only 500
litres of water .
We do more than just fight fire - we attend motor vehicle accidents in our area and believe you me this is not always a pretty sight - especially if there is a possibility that the vehicle could catch fire and we only have 500 litres of water.
Met ons bakkie, soos wat dit is, het ons tot verbasing deur die veld geploeter, eintlik die voertuig misbruik, maar met omstandighede kon ons nie anders nie. Daarom wil ek weereens beklemtoon, met 'n 4x4 trok en meer water, tenminste 3000L, kon dit soveel makliker gewees het.
Met insameling het ons ten minste R103 000-00 bymekaar gekry, vir die 4x4 trok wat meer water kan dra. As almal maar kan besef, dis nie om eie gewin nie, maar ten goede van ons biosfeer area, en die beskikbaarheid van water. As ons en ons mede inwoners en vakansiegangers maar kan besef dis die behoud van ons drome en om hier te kan bly. Dis mos waarom ons hier gekoop het.
