Disaster management course held

The Western Cape Government with its partners in the local government sphere, safety and security agencies, and emergency services agencies participated in a functional scenario based training exercise (SBTE) in Bredasdorp from 20-23 November 2018. The course was presented by two experienced trainers with years of practical experience in real-life disaster situations: Michael Kopitzke and Eric Kurtz (from Missoula, Montana). Mick and Eric were supported by NCC Environmental Services.

The exercise took place at Bredasdorp Park, in Bredasdorp and was hosted by the Overberg District Municipality and the Greater Overberg Fire Protection Association (goFPA).

This interagency exercise was made possible by the Western Cape Government’s Disaster Management Centre as part of a disaster readiness exercise for the province in anticipation for the coming fire season. The aim was to give the Western Cape Incident Management Team (IMT) an opportunity to enhance and apply their knowledge and experience to a simulated wildfire incident.

Vulcan Wildfire Services also presented a Divisional Supervisor course to selected fire services’ members and goFPA Fire Management Unit leaders.  This course was organised and funded by the Western Cape Government Disaster Management Centre.
