The Western Cape Department of Local Government says it has, since 2017, purchased 62 fire fighting vehicles for its municipalities to better fight veld and residential fires.
The project was aimed at improving the ability of the province’s B- and C category municipalities to respond to fire-emergencies.
Spokesperson at the Department, James-Brent Styan says the purchases represent a capital investment of nearly R54-million.
